Grange V. Holt was a prominent banker employed by the Canadian Bank of Commerce (now the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce). He was transferred from their branch at Nelson, B.C. in about 1912 to Seattle. In 1915, he was transferred back to Vancouver and retired about 1928. His connection with the Hoonah Co. is unknown, but he did get to some very distant places in the first decades of this century.
