Notes for John Andrew McMillan
Manager at the Dominion Mills from about 1918 to 1924.

…………………………………………….

Seattle industrialist Julius Bloedel built the original Dominion Mill, which opened at the south end of Boundary Road in 1910. That was more than 100 years after Scottish explorer Simon Fraser first travelled the river in 1808. The mill was the first in Canada to produce pressure-treated wood for use as railway ties. In 1935, lumber baron H.R. MacMillan purchased the Dominion for $75,000 and expanded with the Canadian White Pine Mill next door. Those mills eventually employed thousands of workers. The Canadian White Pine Mill burned to the ground two years later and was rebuilt in 1939. By that time, the Dominion Mill had been processing more than 200,000 feet (almost 38 miles) of timber each day. In 1944, a third mill, simply called “C Mill” was built.

Jack & Pearl were living at Pearl’s grandmother’s home (Nancy Shuttleworth (Hill/Simpson/Taylor), 2474 Cornwall St, Vancouver, BC when John McMillan was born (1916). They then moved to their own home at 2950 Bayswater in Vancouver (1921-1926).

In 1926 they moved to Port Alberni, living at 7th Avenue and Angus. In 1929 they moved across the street to 201 7th Ave South (address now changed). The house was owned by the Alberni Pacific Lumber Company and it was rented from them. Anne McMillan was born in 1931 and this was her childhood home.

When Jack retired in 1957, he and Pearl moved to 1049 Chilco St, Vancouver.
