Continuing the
Al Peirce Legacy

The Judith Ann Mogan Foundation was organized as a Private Foundation in 2020. While it is a new non-profit organization, its roots in the Southern Oregon Coast goes back a long way.

It all started as early as the 1930s when Al Peirce owned a business that supplied piling materials for the construction of the McCollough Bridge on Highway 101 as you enter North Bend, OR. A few decades later, what started as a piling business expanded into a fully integrated timber company and the business was renamed to Al Peirce Lumber Company. The Company owned thousands of acres of timberlands which supplied raw materials to its mills. The logs from the timberlands were transported by the company’s own trucking business to the mills where they were then converted to lumber. At the height of Al Peirce Lumber Co.’s business, the company owned its own ship that carried lumber all the way to the company’s distribution center in Long Beach, CA. Several mills that were owned by the company dotted the frontage of the bay along Highway 101. As a vertically integrated company, Al Peirce Lumber Company was a major employer in the community.
