The “Industrial Explorers” exhibition of panels tracing the origins and history of the innovative Brown Company Research and Development group is now available to view online and to download (see links below).
The Berlin, NH, company pioneered a number of innovations, driven by a desire to make better use of the forest as a resource for a wide array of products—from “aeroplane spruce” to “kraft” pulp/paper, and including some unlikely stops along the way (“Kream Krisp,” anyone?).
Below are links to two files and one web page. The first is to a file of the panels, themselves. The second is a transcription of the text on the panels. The third is a page on this website, where you can view images of the panels. We’ll post a link to an online slide-show version of the exhibition in the near future.
Please contact Linda Upham-Bornstein, who did the research and developed the content of the exhibition, with questions or comments. She can be reached best via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
All of the photos used on the panels came from the Beyond Brown Paper collection, which you can view and annotate online at: beyondbrownpaper.plymouth.edu.
