The American Pulp and Paper Industry, 1900-1940: Mill Survival, Firm Structure, and Industry Relocation


This book examines the U.S. pulp and paper industry between 1900-1940, the period when pulp and paper production relocated from the North to the South and the West. This relocation was one of the most influential shifts in industrial production in the 20th century, ranking second in extent of outmigration only to the exit of the cotton textile industry. This study focuses on the reason for the shift, with emphasis on the interrelationships among firm location, industrial structure, vertical integration, and firm survival and growth.
