Administrative history

Cooley Brothers Jewelers was started in 1914 by brother Charles L. and Robert W. Cooley, who immigrated to Canada from London, England, in 1912 and 1914 respectively. Charles' son, Donald Leonard Cooley, born in 1926, began his career as a watchmaker and jeweler in the family business in 1946. The store was renamed Cooley Jewelers and was located at 1569 Barrington Street; the company was a member of the Halifax Jewellers Association. Cooley Jewelers went out of business ca. 1974.
