The Brown Company Collection documents much of the history of the Brown Company of Berlin, New Hampshire from the late nineteenth century through the mid-1960s. This collection provides access to images that depict work activity ranging from the felling of trees to the final manufacture of pulp and paper in Berlin and Gorham. This is an educational resource that chronicles engineering projects, mill construction, equipment installation, as well as the social, cultural, and recreational lives of the workers, their families, and Berlin itself. The Brown Company digital images represent a small portion of the entire collection, which is located in Lamson Library’s Michael J. Spinelli Jr. Center for University Archives and Special Collections.
Currently, this repository contains a portion of the images from the Beyond Brown Paper collection. If you are looking for the original Beyond Brown Paper website, it is currently accessible only on the Plymouth State University campus at http://beyondbrownpaper2.plymouth.edu.
