An Illustrated History of Great Lakes Paper and its Successors, 1919-1999
by Roy Piovesana, Beth Boegh and Thorold J. Tronrud

This illustrated history details the evolution and development of Great Lakes Paper Company from a local Thunder Bay operation to part of an international forest products corporation. It is based on thousands of negatives, slides and photographic prints, taken over a fifty-year period by professional photographers. Every operation of the mill and the company's woodlands are depicted, documenting the exceptional relationship between  Great Lakes and its employees. Throughout the mergers, structural changes and takeovers, the traditions of technological innovation and competitive spiritedness have allowed the Thunder Bay facility to remain one of the leading pulp and paper complexes in North America.
