Name of creator
In 1899, Simon Mackenzie and his two brothers founded the Mackenzie Brothers Steamship Company which eventually served the entire coast of British Columbia. In 1907, the SS Rupert City began service to Prince Rupert. Several years later, the firm sold out to the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway; the Mackenzie fleet became the nucleus of the Canadian National coastwise service.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of correspondence, 1915, relating to designs for portable housing and an anti-submarine boom utilizing B.C. cedar, which S.F. Mackenzie was offering to the Imperial forces.
