EARLY DAYS IN THE LUMBER BUSINESS
Written by W.A. Holt, later mayor of Oconto city, this is a first hand "big picture" look at county lumbering from the view of the owner's son, who learned the business literally from the ground up. His world gave him direct contact with every person connected to the business, from the Oconto County Indian guides, loggers, teamsters, village citizen, farm owners, foremen, sailing ship captains and crews, dam builders, river drive workers, mill workers, local lawyers and judges, right up to the owners of the largest lumber companies in the world of that time. It provides a good perspective of the big business owner from the mid 1800's to the early 1900's, when lumber was king.
