(-as transcribed from pages 481 - 482)

The Drummond Packing Company, of Eau Claire was founded in 1873 by David Drummond under the firm name of Brooks & Drummond, and was carried on as such until 1876, when Mr. Brooks died.  From that time until 1881 Mr. Drummond continued the business alone and in the last named year his brothers, John and Duncan, purchased an interest in the business, which was conducted under the firm name of Drummond Brothers until it was incorporated in 1893 as the Drummond Packing Company, with a capital of $125,000.  The officers for 1914 are:  David Drummond, president; John Drummond, vice-president; F. W. Thomas, treasurer, and D. G.
