David Henry was one of the pioneers of the early twentieth century paper industry in New Zealand. He was a Scot who emigrated to start a new life; in 1935 he became the chairman of the New Zealand Forest Products company, and in 1954 he was instrumental in opening the Kinleith Paper Mill. This article discusses the mill, the town and the local community that grew up around it, the roots of which can be found based in Henry's Scottish background.
