The Beginnings of the Brown Paper Mill

Today, this facility in West Monroe is known as Graphic Packaging. Back in 1924, a newsletter out of Delaware called “The Super Calender” did a profile about the brand new West Monroe Mill that had just started operating. I found a copy of this newsletter on Ebay and bought it for the collection. You can see it here: https://www.louisianadigitallibrary.org/islandora/object/oplib-orv%3A118 .

There are some great photos included in this little booklet!
