Scope and Content Note

This collection contains research reports, under various names, for the various research centers, laboratories, and experimental forests of MeadWestvaco and its predecessor companies. The reports are grouped together by facility and then by title. Most reports have been assigned reference numbers by the company. There is a donor-created list of box contents filed in cartons 1-12.

Historical Note

MeadWestvaco originated in two separate companies. The Mead Paper Company had its beginnings in 1846, and the West Virginia Pulp and Paper Company (Westvaco) in 1888. The companies produced paper and packaging products, and they maintained research forests in several states (mostly in the American South) for the development of pulp for these products. The two companies merged to become MeadWestvaco in 2002, and it became known as the MWV Corporation in 2011. Some of the research conducted by these companies involved faculty from North Carolina State University.
