1916 Obituary [1]

THOMAS J. DRUMMOND died at Castine, Maine, on August 6, 1916, at the age of fifty-six. He was born at Tawley, in Ireland, but he was educated at Montreal.

In 1882 he entered as a partner the firm of Drummond, McCall & Co., iron and steel merchants, of Montreal, which had been established a year earlier by his elder brother. They afterwards founded the Montreal Wheel Works at Lachine and the Drummond-McCall Pipe Foundry, and they bought the Radnor forges.

In 1908 the Canada Iron Corporation was formed, which amalgamated all the Drummond undertakings, and Mr. T. J. Drummond became president. He was also actively associated with the Lake Superior Steel Corporation of which he was elected president in 1909; the Algoma Steel Company; its subsidiary, the Algoma Central Railway, at Saulte Ste. Marie; and the Cockshutt Plow Company.

He was one of the founders of the American Iron and Steel Institute, holding the position of director, and he joined the Iron and Steel Institute in 1912.
