Frederick W. Leadbetter (1875-1948) was an Iowa-born financier who made his fortune primarily in lumber and paper milling in the Pacific Northwest and California.[1] He was married to Caroline Pittock, daughter of The Oregonian publisher Henry Pittock, and with his father-in-law established Columbia River Paper Company and the Northwestern Bank of Portland, as well as several enterprises in his own right.[1][2] His Queen Anne Style architecture home on Lacamas Lake near Camas, Washington, complete with a three-story cupola, is a local landmark. He also maintained a residence in Portland. He was active in the management of his businesses, including the paper company, until his death in 1948.[1]
