P. B. McLeod

P. B. McLEOD is identified with the shipping and transportation interests of Seward Peninsula, owning vessels and barges in the coast trade. He was born in Toronto, Canada, September 9, 1870, and received a public school education in his native city. He went to Chicago when he was fourteen years old, subsequently moving to Seattle, where he lived for ten years, and followed the business of a dry goods merchant. He sold out in 1900, and since 1901 has been connected with the shipping business of Nome.

For the past two seasons Mr. McLeod has been the agent at Nome for the steamer Corwin, Captain West, master. The Corwin was formerly a revenue cutter, and is the first vessel arriving at Nome in the spring, and usually the last one to leave in the fall.

Mr. McLeod's name reveals his Scotch ancestry. He is energetic in business, a true friend, and a man of strong character.
