American Lumberman Photographs of Southern Pine Lumber Company Operations in East Texas, 1903 & 1907

American Lumberman was a weekly trade journal created on January 1, 1899 from the merger of Northwestern Lumberman, established in 1873, and The Timberman, established in 1886. The magazine featured the Southern Pine Lumber Company of Diboll, Texas (founded in 1893), in three issues: November 16, 1901; April 16, 1904; and January 18, 1908. This online collection contains digital images of 254 gelatin silver prints made by American Lumberman photographers primarily during visits to Diboll in 1903 and 1907, documenting the lumber company’s management, logging operations, lumber camps, sawmills, commissary, and social life.
