By about 1907, Howard was a pharmacy apprentice in Vancouver.

Howard was a member of the Victoria Board of Trade in 1919.

He was also involved in the predecessor to the Capital City Executive Association in Victoria. In the late 1920s, the organization was called the “Usadians” [presumably a combination of USA and Canadians]. In 1930, Howard was a member of the board of directors.

Merryfield and Dack were involved in a legal dispute with the Male Minimum Wage Board. In 1930, the board ruled that pharmacist licentiates should receive at least 80 cents per hour. Some pharmacists, including Merryfield and Dack, did not agree with the board’s decision, and appealed to the British Columbia Supreme Court. The judge dismissed the application to rescind the board’s order, but also said that the appeal could go ahead at a later date as if it were a new hearing. The British Columbia Court of Appeal concluded that a lower court order was invalid, because it did not deal with the whole appeal. It is not clear what happened after this stage of the case.

The purpose of the group was the promotion of business, business leads among members and the fostering of good civic, social and moral conduct among members. The club was originally affiliated with other Executive Clubs throughout North America, with the International Organization head office in San Francisco. In 1925, the International Organization’s head office changed the name of the club to the International Executive Association with the Victoria chapter renamed to the Capital City Executive Association. A few years later the name was again changed to the Usadians. In 1931, the local members voted to secede from the International Organization. They then chose the name Capital City Commercial Club on March 13, 1931. In 1986, the organization was renamed the Capital City Commercial Association.”

Margaret Edna Dack and Peter Mackintosh, wedding description, Victoria Colonist, July 28, 1915, page 6: “A very pretty wedding took place on Monday evening at the home of the bride’s parents, when Margaret Edna, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E.D. Dack, of 1283 Walnut Street, was united in marriage to Peter Mackintosh, accountant, Bank of Nova Scotia, and eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. A. Macintosh [sic] of Perth, Scotland. On account of the bridegroom’s early departure for the front, the ceremony was of a quiet nature and only the immediate relatives and friends of the contracting parties were present. The chaplain, Captain the Rev. Dr. Campbell, and the bridegroom wore the uniform of their regiment. The bride, who was given away by her father, wore a very becoming travelling suit of white corduroy velvet, trimmed with black and pink Gainsboro hat and carried a bouquet of pink and white bridal roses. She was attended by her little niece, Cecile Dack, who acted as flower Girl. The happy couple left on the midnight boat for a short trip.”
