Fred T. Jennings, circuit manager, Canadian Pacific Railway Telegraph Co. (1897)

From Wikipedia:

“Along with railways, CPR also established telegraph operations to allow communications to remote areas.

Established as CPR Telegraph Company in 1894, it later became CNCP Telecommunications in 1967 (co-owned with rival Canadian National Railway) and as Unitel Communications Incorporated 1990.

Prior to the name change to Unitel, Rogers Communications acquired a stake in 1984 and later sold to AT&T Canada in 1984. Unitel disappeared into AT&T in 1993 and Rogers sold the rest by 1995. AT&T Canada was later sold off by parent AT&T into an independent company, MTS Allstream.”
