The Hanthorn Cannery Foundation – Founded 2003
The Hanthorn Cannery Foundation was founded in 2003 in Astoria, Oregon by a group former workers and managers of Bumble Bee Seafood Corporation to commemorate the work done by them and thousands of other employees for over a century, and to create a museum in their honor. Bumble Bee was one of many labels trademarked by the Columbia River Packers Association (CRPA) including names of flowers, fish and birds. The company changed its name to the Bumble Bee Seafood Corporation in 1961, but closed its headquarters here in 1981 and moved to San Diego.
