The Story of The Eagle Paper Machine...

The Eagle Paper Machine was built in Great Britain in 1912 by a purveyor of dandy rolls. Unfortunately the builder's name remains a mystery. The machine was fabricated mostly of bronze and brass. Rumor has it that the designer destroyed the drawings so the machine could never be duplicated. First exhibited at the 1914 World's Fair in Leipzig, Germany, The American Writing Company of Holyoke, Massachusetts purchased The Eagle by outbidding England's Lord Northcliff.

The Eagle then made its journey to the United States where it was displayed at various trade shows. The last time The Eagle is known to have made paper was at the Chicago's World's Fair in 1939. After several decades of sitting in a crate, American Writing papermaker Ray Beaudry convinced management to display the machine at events around the country. During this time the machine was shown running mechanically without making paper. In 1989 the last American Writing mill ceased operation and The Eagle went back to its crate for nearly ten years.

Late in 1998, CAN-AM MACHINERY president, Daniel Nigrosh purchased The Eagle with the goal of making paper for the first time in 60 years. The machine has now been rebuilt with the help of well-known papermakers, Bill English and Frank Emerson.
