The first unit of the McDougall Terminal building was completed in 1923. It is named for Scotsman, inventor, patent holder, financier and shipbuilder, Capt. Alexander McDougall (1845-1923). At the time of Alexander McDougall’s death, his son Alexander Miller McDougall (born Duluth 1884 and called A.
