Dates of existence


Peter Anderson was born in Onsjo, Sweden. He emigrated to the United States in 1885, settling in Minnesota. After working as a farmer, he joined Weyerhaeuser Timber Company in Wisconsin as a logger. In 1888 Anderson moved to Tacoma, Washington where he became a partner in a small shingle mill. After the mill closed, Anderson went to the Klondike in 1897. While there he earned enough money to open a saw mill back in Washington State. He then moved north to British Columbia where, after contracting to log for Hastings Mill, he and his sons began a new company at Knox Bay and then Grassy Bay.
