Administrative History - Biographical Sketch:
The Dominion Line was founded in 1870 as the Liverpool & Mississippi Steamship Co. In 1872 the official name of the company was changed to Mississippi & Dominion Steamship Co. Ltd. The sailings were advertised under the name "Dominion Line." In 1873 the line was represented in Norway by a general agent in Kristiania (Oslo) by the name of M. R. Raffel. He was authorized to convey emigrants by steamship via Hull - Liverpool to Quebec or New Orleans and to the final destination in America. The authorization was not renewed for 1874, and the line seems not to have been represented in Norway again before 1880. The agent from 1880 was J. Krantz of Kristiania. Authorization was to convey emigrants by steamship via Hull - Liverpool to Quebec or New Orleans and to the final destination in America.
