Memorable Manitobans: J. H. Hines (1879-?)

Business manager.

Born at Brantford, Ontario on 26 June 1879, after a high school education, he start work as an office boy in the Waterous Engine Works Company at the age of 13. He then worked in a plumbing and heating engineering business for four years, then spent two years with Frank Cockshutt & Company. Looking for new opportunities, he left the firm in 1907 and came to Winnipeg where he bought a partnership in the Winnipeg Clothing Company, a wholesale manufacturing concern. The business did not meet his expectations so he took a job as an accountant with the firm of Webb, Read & Hegan, then some time later with the Hanbury Companies. In 1908 he became secretary-treasurer of the Manitoba Hardware & Lumber Company then the same position with the Hanbury Manufacturing Company and the North Star Lumber Company. He advanced to the position of general manager then vice-president of the Hanbury Hardware Company and the Manitoba Hardware & Lumber Company, and to the directorate of the North Star Lumber Company and the Hanbury Manufacturing Company. He was a member of the Knight of Pythias, Commercial Club, Brandon Club, and St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church at Brandon.
