Biographical history

The Murray-Latta Machine Company is a machine manufacturer and steel fabricator that over the years has specialized in fish canning machinery. The company began in 1919 in Vancouver as Murray-Latta Machine Works as a partnership between John F. Latta and James L. Murray. In 1926, the partnership became Murray-Latta Machine Company Ltd., with Murray as president and Latta as secretary-treasurer. Murray seems to have retired in 1939 and Latta continued as president and manager until 1955.
