Name of creator
Charles Gardner Johnson (1857-1926), a Scottish mariner who arrived in Vancouver in 1885, opened the first shipping and insurance agency in the city in 1886. C. Gardner Johnson Limited operated as one of the city's major shipping agents for almost 100 years. In 1920, they became agents for the Johnson Line of Sweden. Following Johnson's death, the agency was bought by Johnson Line in 1938 and the shipowners continued to run the company until 1978.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of the minute books of C. Gardner Johnson Limited from 1921-1925 and 1937-1951; annual reports for 1939-1943; and a recording of the opening of Centennial Pier in 1967.
