Biography – PEARSON, FREDERICK STARK – Volume XIV (1911-1920) – Dictionary of Canadian Biography
The Pearsons subsequently set up residence in Somerville, Mass., where Fred, with assistance from W. L. Hooper of Tufts, organized the Somerville Electric Light Company and the Woburn Electric Light Company. In addition, a subsidiary was formed to build electrical generators and boilers.

Pearson’s success as manager and treasurer of the Somerville and Woburn companies drew the attention of Henry Melville Whitney*, a steamship and real estate magnate who had consolidated six Boston-area horse railways into the West End Street Railway in 1887. To electrify the system and devise a reliable method of delivering power to the cars in Boston’s often inclement climate, Whitney turned to Pearson, who became the company’s chief engineer in 1889 at an annual salary of $2,500. He designed new, high-torque motors for the cars and oversaw the construction of a power station to house dynamos capable of producing an unprecedented 500 horsepower.

[...]

His success in Boston brought him an offer in 1894 to become chief engineer of the Metropolitan Street Railway in New York, created the previous year by Whitney’s brother, William Collins. Like its Boston counterpart, it faced problems in the generation and distribution of power; as well, it had to deal with demands that overhead wires not blight the streetscapes. Drawing on the recent theories of William Stanley, the American inventor who had identified the virtues of polyphase alternating current for efficient long-distance transmission, Pearson worked closely with Westinghouse Electric to develop huge generators and he devised an ingenious underground conduit for carrying power to the cars. The Metropolitan strained his nerves, however. Though his salary had risen to $75,000, he resigned in January 1898 and left for France, Switzerland, and Italy. Mabel Pearson hoped that the trip would mark the beginning of a life of leisure. In fact, it marked the most crucial watershed in Fred Pearson’s career: the transition from salaried manager to “techno-entrepreneur,” purveyor of North American electrical technology to Cuba, Brazil, Mexico, and Spain, backed by a maturing Canadian financial industry and later by European capital.

[...]

He thus set a pattern for the wave of Canadian-American utility imperialism that would sweep through the Caribbean and Latin America. In many of these ventures Pearson was to be the technological wizard who lent his reputation, his contacts with American electrical-equipment makers, and his staff of electrical apostles.
