Bergstrom Paper Company was founded by D.W. Bergstrom in 1904. The mill make fine-quality book paper used for law books, Bibles, magazines, school books and labels. High-grade waste paper fibers were blended with virgin pulp fibers, resulting in a smooth, high-quality sheet known as Valkyrie Book Paper. The Bergstrom Paper Company was one of the first papermakers in the United States to recognize that recycling used paper was good for the environment. By 1979 when the mill was sold to the P.H. Glatfelter Company, it was one of the leading manufacturers of recycled book printing papers in the world.
