Jewitt was a chemist in Warren's R&D laboratory from 1942 until the early 1950s. He provides a very detailed account of the technical work of improving the mill's high quality publication papers. Jewitt also lends a remarkable, rich depiction of three mill managers in the era, and the nepotism and politics of Warren's management.
