Planning a pulp mill, early 1920s. In the early 1920s, Bart Thane, left, managing director of the Alaska Gastineau mine, tried to turn the failing mine in Thane into a pulp mill. The engineer invited Japanese interests to invest in the venture, but the plan never materialized. Thane is shown here, from left to right, with lawyer H.L. Faulkner; an unknown foreign investor; banker B.M. Behrends; a foreign investor; Emile Gastonguay, superintendent of the Alaska Gastineau properties at Thane; and two other unknown Japanese investors.
