Biographical history

Clarence Hoard was a civil engineer, surveyor and railway contractor who came to Victoria ca. 1912. About 1921, Hoard became President and Managing Director of Bainbridge Lumber Company, a position that he held until approximately 1935. Around 1927, Hoard also began the Hoard Company Ltd., which manufactured silos. The Hoard Company lasted, in one form or another, until approximately 1935, when Hoard appears to have retired from his business interests.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The fonds consists of photographs of the business interests of Clarence Hoard. Photographs include images of logging in British Columbia and the manufacture of silos. Also included are photographs collected presumably because Hoard was an investor in several ventures. These include photographs of the Nitinat Lake, Clo-ose and Carmanah regions of Vancouver Island taken by the West Coast Development Company, and photographs of the Cholberg Shipyard and the schooner S.F. Tolmie, which was built at the Cholberg Shipyard.
