1 Armson, Kenneth A. and McLeod, Marjorie A. THE LEGACY OF JOHN WALDIE AND SONS: A HISTORY OF THE VICTORIA HARBOUR LUMBER COMPANY.
Toronto Natural Heritage 2007 1550027581 / 9781550027587 First Edition Soft Cover Fine 
152 pp, 9" H. B&w photographs, reproductions, maps. "At the time of his death in 1907, John Waldie, founder of the Victoria Harbour Lumber Company, was identified as 'the second largest lumber operator in Canada'. A young Scottish immigrant who came to Wellington Square (now Burlington, Ontario) in 1842, he rose to prominence as a wealthy merchant and shipowner. In 1885 he entered the lumber business. Active in local and federal politics, and a friend of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, he invested capital in mills, people, and forests. Local history and genealogical connections are part of the Waldie story, headquartered at Victoria Harbour in Simcoe County. Documentation of the forests that the company logged - their nature, amounts and sizes of logs harvested, and descriptions of the forests as they are now - throws new light on history and shatters some current myths. This little-known story provided insights into days of rampant entrepreneurialism, the world of lumber barons, and the impact on Ontario forests." Inside - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - clean and bright.
