Manitoba Business: N. Bawlf Grain Company

Link to:
Presidents | Country Elevators | Sources

This firm was established by Winnipeg-based grain merchant Nicholas Bawlf. Upon his death in 1914, control of the company was turned over to a join stock company in which members of the Bawlf family were the chief shareholders. Reorganized in 1928, assets of the company, including its network of country elevators, were sold for $1,000,000 to the Alberta Pacific Grain Company in early 1941.
