Strathmore Employees Then and Now
Reminisce with us today as we take a look back at Strathmore employees in the early 1900's! Our rich history began in 1892 when our founder, Horace Moses, turned the first shovel of dirt for a new paper mill in West Springfield, MA. Writing papers, bookkeeping papers and cotton-fiber artist papers were the first surfaces manufactured.
In the mid-1890’s, Horace made a trip to the Strathmore Valley in Scotland and became inspired by its beauty and the blooming August thistles. By 1895 Horace began using the phrase “Strathmore Quality” and the thistle as a symbol of the highest quality papers.
A lot has changed since then, but we’re still just as dedicated to providing quality surfaces that perform. A big thanks from all of us today to the artists who contiue to choose our papers for their artwork!
