Description: Form the earliest small-scale logging and milling operations to the multinational conglomerates of today, the timber industry has long shaped the social and economic history of the southern United States. Nowhere is this more true than in Crossett, Arkansas. Born of the axe and saw, oxen and steam engines, and nurtured by the railroad during its infancy, Crossett was transformed from a remote and virtually unknown tract of rolling pine into one of the leading forest products centers in the United States, yielding enormous quantities of dimensional lumber, paneling, paper and related products, and wood-based chemicals. The story of Crossett through its first forty-five years rests almost exclusively on a single institution-the Crossett Lumber Company-and the cast of characters responsible for its founding and survival.
