Name of creator
Hood Brothers was a firm located in Vancouver, B.C. specializing in real estate, insurance brokering, and notarizing. Originally owned and operated by Robert Allison Hood and his brother William Bennett Hood, who died in 1917, the company provided services to individuals both in Canada and abroad (primarily in the U.S. and in Scotland) in relation to real estate transactions, loans and mortgages, inheritances and estate transfers, investments, insurance policies, and more. The involvement of a third brother, Harry Hood, is unclear.
