Wilkie P. Garrison (1871 - c. 193x) was an American businessman. Born in Canada, Garrison's parents moved the family to central Saskatchewan in 1885. He became a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police two years later and served with distinction. However, he did not serve as a mounted policeman for long. He left the force to prospect for minerals in the Peace River country before immigrating to the United States in 1890. His first stop in the United States was in Colorado where hhe mined and used Denver as his 'headquarters'. By 1902 Garrison was in Chicago and held the position of President of the Illinois Colorado Oil, Gas and Coal Company. By 1906, Garrison was operating 'special excursions' for investors to Goldfield, Nevada, from Chicago. Then, by 1910, Garrison had relocated to Pasadena, where he operated real estate companies and owned real estate there and in San Diego, likely having earned his wealth in Goldfield, and continued to have success through at least 1914, when he advertised homes for sale in Los Angeles and Pasadena, orange and lemon groves, alfalfa ranches, and farm land in the Saskatoon Phoenix. Intriguingly, Wilkie Garrison appears in th3e 1930 U.S. Census back in Chicago as the proprietor of a lumber company.
