Journal 1 - Horace

This book has been named after Strathmore's founder, Horace Augustus Moses. On St. Patrick's Day of 1892, Horace turned the first shovel of dirt for a new paper mill in West Springfield, Massachusetts. Through his successful leadership, Strathmore became one of the top manufacturers of fine writing papers, rag book papers, artists' papers, and boards.
