Biographical history

Harold Scanlon Foley, born and educated in the United States, first entered the retail lumber business in Florida in 1925. In 1936, he was appointed Executive Vice-President of the Powell River Company, British Columbia's first newsprint operation founded by Foley's uncle, M.J. Scanlon. In 1959, MacMillan Bloedel and the Powell River Company merged to form MacMillan, Bloedel and the Powell River Limited, and Foley was appointed Vice-Chairman. He resigned in April 1961, but continued to devote much time to public and business life, serving on many directorships in corporations and in voluntary organizations. He was appointed a Knight of St. Gregory, and in 1956, he was elected a Knight of Malta.
