Door #15 -- October 18, 2011

William Matson founded the Matson Navigation Company, which carried passengers and freight from San Francisco to many points in the Pacific, particularly Hawaii, in 1882.  The Matson Building, once headquarters of the steamship line, is now part of the Pacific Gas and Electric Company's headquarters.  Matson (http://www.matson.com/) is still the biggest freight hauler between San Francisco and Hawaii.
