One of the outstanding events of 1937 was the marked increase in the development of the pulp and paper industry in the southeastern region of the United States. All the states from Virginia to Texas are included in this industrial growth. The number of establishments in operation and under constrnction is close to fifty. The social and economic implications of this step in the industrialization of the South are very far reaching and are not dealt with in this paper. The author deals only with some of those phases of the movement that more directly concern foresters.
