Biographical Notes

Established in Boston by Frederic Tudor, the Tudor Ice Company, later known as the Tudor Company engaged in exporting ice and other merchandise, and importing tea, camphor, goat and sheepskins, jute, indigo, coffee, and buffalo hides. The company owned ice houses in Calcutta, Madras, Bombay, Galle, Singapore, Jamaica, Havana, New Orleans, and Charleston. It was with these ports that most of the trade was conducted. The last shipment of ice was made by the company in 1886. See sketch of Frederic Tudor in Dictionary of American Biography.
