An edited, shortened version of the visit to a St. Regis Paper Company log drive recorded on Tape 33. Bill Mincher provides background on the tradition of log drives on the Machias River and includes comments from Byron McPheters, Bob Wright, and Francis Haley. (This record and the transcript reflect the spelling found on the station log; state records seem to have alternate spellings of Francis Healy and Francis Healey as well). Interviews recorded May 8, 1957.
