    Abstract

    Technological innovation, big and small, has played a critical role in the evolution of the modern United States pulp and paper industry since its origins in the early nineteenth century. New technological knowledge and its implementation, more than anything else, gave entrepreneurs, firms, industries, and whole regions, the ability to create or capture new markets, or erect new production hubs, and to forge ahead competitors.
