Arrangement and Description

The material in this Record Group was, for the most part, in labeled folders or three-ring notebooks. All headings were retained during processing. The two accessions which were combined to form this group form the two series divisions.The Potlatch mill modernization records maintained by the Lewiston Office of Potlatch Forests, Inc. include correspondence, blueprints, cost estimates, and photographs relating to the various remodellings at Potlatch. Major renovations took place in 1961, 1973-1974, and 1978. Some of the material is an overall study of the plans, other folders deal with specific areas or pieces of equipment. There are two oversize volumes of equipment drawings.The second series contains ten bound volumes entitled Pres-to-Log machine drawings and material specifications, and contains greatly reduced drawings of various parts of the machinery.
