Phil Lind

Phil’s grandfather was in 40 Mile since 1894 and missed the initial staking rush in August 1896 but was successful in acquiring claims. In 1903 he sold out, a wealthy man and returned to St. Mary’s, Ontario, his home town and started St. Mary’s Cement that grew to become Ontario’s second largest cement corporation. Phil established the Lind wing in the Dawson City Museum in recognition of their start of a business empire.
