Edgar Multer Licensed Accountant

Edgar Multer with his wife Ellinor and daughters Tiina Mal and Ell Piret arrived to USA and Griggs County in August 1949.  Their homeland Estonia was occupied by Soviet Union in 1944 and Edgar and Ellinor Multer left to Western Europe.  After the United States Congress passed the special Displaced Persons Immigration Law in 1948 the Multer family arrived to the U.S. as farm workers sponsored by Arne and Mildred Goplen, Binford, N.D.

After getting more familiar with English language, Ellinor started to work in 1956 as clerk for U.S. government in Cooperstown and 1960 Edgar accepted the job as accountant for the local new car dealership, the occupations they both had held for many years in their native land.

After 1964 Edgar gradually moved to the public accounting field and in 1973 passed the Federal exams with the right to represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service.  About that time Ellinor joined her husband's office as clerk and bookkeeper.  In 1975 the license was issued to Edgar to practice Public Accounting in North Dakota.  He also holds membership in National and North Dakota Society of Public Accountants.
