The eldest son of Frederick Weyerhaeuser, John P. Weyerhaeuser continued to build the empire his father had begun. When John assumed the presidency, the family holdings numbered well over a dozen companies, ranging from sales entities to actual lumbering firms, and he managed them as a relatively cohesive unit, paving the way for his sons and other relatives.
