Biographical history

Frank Woodside was a native of Prince Edward Island. In 1896 he came to Rossland where he became secretary of the Western Federation of Miners and took an active part in the eight hour movement. He came to Vancouver in 1903, where he was one of the principal advocates of the annexation of the Hastings Townsite. After the annexation, he sat as Alderman for the ward for the next 16 years. He was a charter member of the B.C. and Yukon Chamber of Mines in 1912, and served as president of that body in 1920. From 1928 to 1955 he was the first paid general manager of the B.C. and Yukon Chamber of Mines.
