Alvin Crocker, of Fitchburg, Massachusetts, and Edwin Bulkley, of New York city. It was organized in May, 187I, by the election of Mr. Crocker, President, Mr. Bulkley, Treasurer, W. F. Davi's, Clerk, and a board of seven directors, of which Messrs. Crocker and Bulkley were members. The capital stock was originally 125,000. The site of the mill was fixed at the head of the canal near the dam of the Turner's Falls Water Company, and their erection was, begun in 187I. In May, 1872, they were so far advanced that a seventy-two inch Fourdrinier paper machine was put in operation. The main building of the works, at first, was x28 feet in length, 55 feet in width, and three stories in height, with a basement. In this building were placed the rag or stock boilers, with the necessary rag-cutting machinery and chemical works, and twelve washing and beating engines with a capacity for producing six tons of rag pulp a day. The wing contains two paper machines, super calendars, and finishing rooms. These buildings were substantially made of stone foundations and brick superstructure. Previous to the autumn of 1872 news printing paper was made exclusively at this establishment. In September that year the Company began the manufacture of super calendered book paper, and that business was continued with such success that in the spring of 1874, they determined to enlarge their works. They extended the wing of the main building 100 feet in length, 55 feet in width, and three stories in height. In 1875 they purchased the adjoining and extensive works of the Turner's Falls Wood Pulp Company, whose building Was 200 feet long, 55 feet wide, and two stories high. It was one of the largest establishments of the kind in this country. In it were thirty-two of the best wood pulp machines, capable of producing six tons of refined wood pulp a day.
