By Brenton S. Halsey

James River Paper Company, later James River Corporation, was formed by Brenton S. Halsey and Robert Williams in 1969. With its headquarters based in Richmond, Virginia, and its owners having extensive backgrounds in the paper business, James River Corporation established itself as a leader throughout the world. Specializing in a variety of consumer, specialty, and industrial paper products, James River Corporation was a pioneer in many ways in American industry and the business world. Furthermore, the corporation’s first president, Brenton S. Halsey, was an active community leader, whose influence can be found throughout Richmond, especially in the revitalization and protection of the James River as the city’s most valuable resource. Brenton Halsey and Robert Williams created a business that far surpassed their wildest expectations, an empire that grew and maintained its position as a world leader in the paper business until its merger with Fort Howard and the eventual move of its headquarters to Chicago, Illinois, in 1997 under the name of Fort James.
