The Gold Coast--A Supplier of Mahogany
Abstract:Although mahogany, the unusual wood with so many diversified uses, is exported commercially to the United States from Central and South America, from the Caribbean countries, and from Africa, by far the largest single source in recent years has been from the African Gold Coast. Frequently since the end of World War II, the United States hap procured more mahogany annually from the Gold Coast than from all other sources of supply combined.
