Hans Lnrlsltan Lutner Petersen

Hans Christian Luther Petersen was born in St.
Thomas, U. S. Virgin Islands, on November 1, 1888
to Mr. and Mrs. Niel Petersen. He was the brother
of twins, Fredrick and Fredricka Petersen. His
early schooling was at a convent where the Depart-
ment of Education now stands and later he took
lessons at the home of private tutors.

Mr. Petersen began working in his father's, Niel,
Kronprindsens Gade butcher shop in 1903 and con-
tinued selling meat in St. Thomas for 65 years
until his retirement in 1968. During this period
he was also a noted ship chandler. Not only was
he a butcher and ship chandler, but he was also a
violinist, marksman, farmer, militiaman and
Colonial Council Member. During his retirement,
he kept busy by doing maintenance work on his
home and being an active member of the Humane Society.

He will be remembered for his frankness and his love
for St. Thomas which he hoped would remain an
unspoiled island.
