Memoirs of Robert Dollar
By the Robert Dollar Company in 2 volumes (1917)


Captain Robert Dollar (1844—1932) was born in Falkirk, Scotland. The title "Captain" was honorary and he was called the “Grand Old Man of the Pacific". Both were bestowed after his entry into the shipping industry. Dollar became a lumber baron, shipping magnate, philanthropist; he was also a Freemason.

California Governor James Rolph, Jr. said at the time of his death, "Robert Dollar has done more in his lifetime to spread the American flag on the high seas than any man in this country." He made the cover of Time magazine on March 19, 1928, with several writings concerning his business', and was given a long obituary in the May 23, 1932, issue. [from Wikipedia]
