A.W. Patton and the McNaughton family founded the first paper mill built on Neenah's waterfront to produce mill-watermarked paper and fine writing papers using cotton fibers. During World War II, the Neenah Paper Company was converted to produce war equipment for the allies. Neenah Paper is known worldwide for its premium personalized watermark stationery. Today, their brands include: Old Council Tree Bond, Classic Collection and Neenah Bond. In 2009, President Barack Obama selected the Classic Crest Recycled 100 Natural White paper made by Neenah Paper Company for his inaugural invitations, citing it as "the greenest premium paper in the world."
