Karina was the sixth child of Hans and Karen Olson, who migrated to this country in 1852. They left Christiania (Oslo) in May and reached Cambridge, Wisconsin in August, where they resided until their death with the exception of about six months in the village of Clinton, now known as Rockdale. Karina attended the Common School at Cambridge, a Select School and when fifteen became a teacher. Later she taught in a school near Whitewater and a Select School in Cambridge. After their marriage, Karina and Rasmus lived in Albion. From the time Rasmus became an instructor at the University of Wisconsin, her home was in Madison with the exception of four summers and one winter passed in Copenhagen during the period when Professor Anderson was US Minister. Mrs. Anderson enjoyed the reputation of being one of the best cooks and housekeepers in Madison. She was a member of the Madison Woman's Club and was instrumental in organizing the Gudrid Reading Circle, whose first meetings were held in her home. She was also at one time Secretary of the Viking Daughters of Madison. Their home was called 'Aasgaard' (dwelling place of Norse Gods).
