Allie Tennant at the Southland Paper Mill

In 1938 Tennant made a bas-relief plaque for the main offices of the Southland Paper Mill in Lufkin Texas. It memorialized the contributions of Francis P. Garvin and Charles Holmes Herty, two scientists who invented the process to make paper from pine pulp. This mill was the first to use this process. This plaque is today in the collection of the Texas Forestry Museum in Lufkin.
