Arizona Biographies





M. C. McDOUGALL, vice president and director of the Phoenix National Bank and vice president and director of the Phoenix Savings Bank & Trust Company, was born in Ontario, Canada, October 31, 1858, and spent his boyhood there. After having completed the common school course of the County of Bruce, he was graduated from the high school and later spent three years in Saint Catherine's Collegiate Institute near Niagara Falls, Ontario. He came to the United States in January, 1883, and started in the general merchandise business in Heppner, Oregon. Six years later, he moved to Puget Sound and for another span of six years was engaged in the mercantile business in that section. The following two years he spent in travel. He came to Arizona in 1897 and since that time has been actively identified with the business, social, fraternal and civic life of Phoenix. He established the McDougal & Cassou Co., clothiers, furnishers and men's outfitters, which for sixteen years has ranked as one of the best of its line in the Southwest. During a large part of the time he has spent in Phoenix, he has been identified with the banking business. He was one of the organizers of the Phoenix Savings Bank & Trust Company, which is affiliated with the Phoenix National Bank. At the annual meeting held in January, 1911, he was made vice president of both banks, and since that time has devoted most of his time to these institutions. Through his long association with the leading professional and business men of Arizona, he has become thoroughly familiar with the financial situation and his appointment to this position has proven most beneficial to the bank. Mr. McDougall is of Scotch descent, his parents, Coll and Ann Clark McDougall, having been among the pioneer Scotch settlers of Ontario.
