James Findlay

b. Oct 5, 1854, Montreal; d. Oct. 19, 1924. Arrived Vancouver June 1887.

Findlay’s background in mining and commerce led to an efficient, business-like civic administration. The monarchy-struck city got a reprieve from the mundane when the Duke and Duchess of Connaught visited in 1912.
