    The Inman-Poulsen Lumber Company was a logging operation based in Portland, Oregon with camps in Keasey, Vernonia, and Kelso, Washington, among others. The company was founded by Robert D. Inman and Johan Poulsen in 1890. Inman was born in 1852 in Ohio. Inman was the president of the company and would remain so until his death in 1920. Poulsen was born as Johannes Poulsen in what is now Denmark. The company built a sawmill on the east side of the Willamette River in Portland. The mill burned down in 1896 but was quickly rebuilt. The company largely operated in Columbia County and was known to be one of the only logging operators in the Vernonia area that used conventional flatcars equipped with air brakes instead of disconnected trucks. The company was bought out in 1954 by the Georgia-Pacific Lumber Company. less
