Abstract:The United States, formerly largely self-sufficient in tannin had come to depend largely on imported materials. War time threats to shipments from overseas led to important efforts to develop domestic tannin sources. Sumac leaves were extensively harvested in Iowa; western hemlock and Sitka spruce bark were investigated; and efforts extended to get additional supplies from chestnut oak and native chestnut. Other sources also were studied. The author reviews many of the potential sources of this important industrial material and gives a general discussion of bow our needs might best be met in another emergency.
