Papermaking on the Androscoggin

My dad and all my uncles worked in the paper mills along the Androscoggin. Working in the paper mills during the summer allowed me and countless others to attend college. This is my heritage and a culture that I know well. For gaining a feeling for this world, I suggest reading Monica Wood's book, Ernie's Ark.

An excellent video summary of this life from Maine's Paper and Heritage Museum:

  1. Great post on papermaking. Monica Wood is a wonderful Maine-based writer, so kudos for highlighting Ernie's Ark, also.
