Monk, John Owens-Illinois Collection, 1980’s

2 cubic feet

The bulk of this collection contains Owens-Illinois records Mr. Monk collected during Temple Inland’s acquisition of over 250 thousand acres of Owens Illinois timberlands in Louisiana in 1986.  These ownership maps, statements, reports and summaries pre-date the acquisition.  Mr. Monk and his colleagues used these records during the acquisition period and after as records of ownership and forest management.
