Sir Collingwood Schreiber 1831-1918

Schreiber's training in England as a civil engineer enabled him to play a prominent role in Canada during the country's years of railway expansion. He was associated with both the Northern and Intercolonial railways prior to succeeding Sandford Fleming as engineer-in-chief of the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1880. In 1885, the community of Isbester's Landing was renamed in his honour.
