Framed black and white photograph of Langdale plant, central still, and stored barrels of rosin, circa 1950s. In 1944 a modern stainless steel turpentine still was completed in Valdosta and became the world’s largest producer of gum naval stores. The new plant marked a turning point from the old fire still process to the new steam distillation techniques developed at the Olustee (Florida) Naval Stores Laboratory. This proved a substantial wartime boost to The Langdale Company, with a cleaner product and standardized barrel sizes. In the mid-1970s the still ceased operation and was sold to the government of Honduras. Langdale’s corporate offices and primary manufacturing facilities are currently located at the site.   21-23.

Images of Greenwood Camp, Southern Resin & Chemical Co.,Stockton, GA, 1950s, photos provided by George Harrington, who grew up in Greenwood Camp and whose father, J.L. “Jake” Harrington, managed the camp. Harrington planned to donate the photos to the Lowndes County Historical Society and Museum but had not done so at the time these were scanned. Family images of turpentine camps, such as this collection, are rare. Laurie Sommers also interviewed Harrington about his time in the camp (not recorded; notes only) and these notes are part of the Turpentine accession of the South Georgia Folklife Collection.

The event that sparked the SGFC turpentine project—the last barrel of domestic gum turpentine in the US being harvested (Soperton, GA) and processed (Baxley,GA) in August of 2001. Appears in Faces in the Piney Woods: Traditions of Turpentine website (2004), an effort of the South Georgia Folklife Project. Major Phillips, the turpentine pictured here, was a long-time employee of Jim Gillis, Jr.  See interviews with both men in the SGFC.   For an article titled “The End of an Era, Georgia Turpentine Industry Fades into History” (Georgia Forestry Magazine Spring 2003: 4-7) staff photographer Bill Godfrey took this series of photos on the last barrels of domestic turpentine being dipped by Major Phillips, an employee of Jim Gillis of Soperton Naval Stores, in August, 2001. This was the last commercial turpentine dipped not only in Georgia, but in the entire U.S.  Used with permission. http://www.gfc.state.ga.us/Publications/Educational/Magazines/Spring2003.pdf
