Historical Society 1946

September 1946 marked the 40th year of paper making in Woodland. In 1946 only 11  men remain who were in the employ of the St. Croix Paper Company when the first newsprint came off the machines September 22, 1906. They were: Frank Burgess, Thaxter Downes, James Saunders, Joseph Aquino, Philip E. Bryant, Chase Cornish, James Tammaro, John T. Brown, Harry G. Foster, Albion Doten and William C. Brown. These men made up the 40-year veterans in 1946. The photo above is undated but it is certainly a very early photo of the paper makers in Woodland. (Photo submitted by Al Churchill).
