John Lund

John Lund


One of six children born to an immigrant Norwegian glassblower, John Lund had a rather unsettled childhood. He dropped out of school at the age of 14. For a while, he tried his hand at several part-time jobs but never stayed long. He then devised various entrepreneurial ways to generate an income, including a quit-smoking program (a fairly novel idea at the time) and a mail order manual on mind-reading (!). Unsurprisingly, none of these ventures caught on. On the off-chance, Lund then got a small part in a local Rochester production in the Clifford Odets play "Waiting for Lefty". He went on from there to work in summer stock, eventually made his way to New York and finagled another small theatrical role while working at the 1939 World's Fair. For the next two years -- still restless -- Lund alternated jobs in advertising with acting and writing for radio.
