the goods enjoying much favor from the general public. In 1862 the late Mr. George K. Snow invented improvements in machinery and processes for the manufacture of paper collars, and a business arrangement was made with Messrs. March Brothers, Pierce & Co., of Boston, for the manufacture and sale of the goods made by the improved methods. After the close of the Civil War, a better and more substantial class of goods was introduced, and the paper collar gradually went out of use. Mr. Snow, sed but a part of the plant, introduced a separate branch of business, that of manufacturing colored, glazed, and enameled papers; these met great success, and the demand for them rapidly increased. Mr. Snow died in the summer of 1885, and Phineas Pierce was then chosen president, and Robert Butterworth superintendent of the works. The business of the company rapidly increased, and additions to the buildings were made at different times, until all the land of the original plant was covered.
