Biographical history

Robert McNair and his brother opened a shingle mill and logging camp at Hastings, B.C. in 1891. The Robert McNair Shingle Company was opened in 1904 and incorporated in 1918. By 1914, the company had built a second mill in Port Moody and was logging on Coquitlam Mountain and at Deep Cove. It later purchased timber rights around Howe Sound and the Gulf Islands. In 1937 the company purchased Stave Falls Lumber Company Limited, primarily for the timber the latter company owned. In 1954, the company was closed down.
