Footnotes

  • Robert Dollar (1844-1932), was born in Falkirk, Scotland. He immigrated to North America and worked in the woods of Ontario, Michigan and Northern California for lumber companies. In 1895, he acquired his first vessel, a three-masted schooner Newsboy to move his lumber from the Pacific Northwest to markets down the coast. Thus began his entry into the shipping industry that included lumber, commodities, mail, and passengers. In the process he became a San Francisco shipping magnate. The Dollar fleet were a common sight from Canada to Canton, San Francisco to Shanghai, and Tacoma to Tokyo.
