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,

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.
