Name of creator
L.E. Shaw Limited was a brick and concrete company based in Lantz, Nova Scotia. The company was incorporated in 1921, but its roots can be traced to 1861 when Robert Shaw opened the first brick plant in Hantsport, Nova Scotia, called Robert Shaw Brickworks. The company expanded through the Maritime provinces and was renamed The Shaw Group, Limited in 1993.
Materials were donated to Dalhousie University in 1981. Prior to that, the records were in the custody of the Estate of Ronald H. Shaw.
