Abstract/ Summary

The pulp and paper industry was cool before many of us were ever born. Yes, it’s that old. Not only was it cool by providing Mainers and immigrants a means to provide for themselves and their families, but it was also high-tech, forward-thinking and environmentally aware. Maybe not much has changed after all? Let’s take a look at a (brief) history of the industry in the Pine Tree State.
