Medford Corporation was organized in August 1932 when the Owen-Oregon Lumber Company went into receivership. The corporation grew and added a new plywood mill in the early 1960s (left foreground). The wigwam burners had been modified with cinder reinjectors in 1950 but were still controversial. Use of the 45-year-old burners ended in 1971.
