Edwin Blagdon Morgan
Prominent among the business men of Vancouver is Edwin Blagdon Morgan, who since 1891 or for a period of 22 years, has been closely identified with the history of the city as a rep. of its business ineterest and as a factor in those circles looking to its political, social and moral advancement. In him are embraced the characteristics of an undaunted integrity, unabating energy and industry that never flags, and moreover he is public-spirited in an eminent degree.
Mr. Morgan was born in Gloucestershire, England April 5, 1860, a son of Thomas and Jane E. Blagdon Morgan. The father was extensively enegaged in farming in Gloucestershire and in 1872 came to the new world, first establishing his home near Lincoln, Nebraska, where he engaged in ranching until his death. He married Jane E. Blagdon, a member of one of the old county families in England.
Their son, Edwin Blagdon Morgan, was a pupil in the grammar schools of Monmouth, England until at the age of 12 he came with his parents across the Atlantic. He was thereafter a resident of the United States for a number of years. He continued his education in the schools of Nebraska, where he continued to reside and manage the home ranch after the death of his father until 1886. In that year he removed westward to Portland, Oregon, where he became chief acct. for the Dunway Lumber Co. and eventually purchased an interest in the business, becoming one of the stockholders and directors. He continued to make his home in Portland until 1891, which year witnessed his arrival in Vancouver. At that time he became manager of the Vancouver branch of the British Columbia Land and Investment Agency, Ltd. of London, England. This company conducted a very extensive mortgage business and mr. Morgan continued as manager until 1908 when he entered upon business on his own account, organizing the firm of E.B. Morgan and Company, general estate and investment agents, real estate, loans, fire insurance, etc.

On the 14th of February 1893, Mr. Morgan was united in marriage to Miss Fannie E. Tite, of Vancouver, a native of Towster, Northamptonshire, England. Their children are Elsie R., Doris G. and Elizabeth B.
