History Compiled by UMaine Cited in BDN Article on Paper Machine Auction

History compiled by the University of Maine was mentioned in a Bangor Daily News article about the auction of Great Northern Paper Co.’s No. 11 paper machine from its defunct Millinocket mill. The article states the No. 11 is the last papermaking machine on the Katahdin Avenue site, which at one time employed more than 4,000 workers as part of a company that opened in 1900. The machine began producing specialty papers for magazines, newspaper supplements, paperbacks and catalogs in the 1950s, according to UMaine records.
