George Weyerhaeuser, the youngest heir to the Weyerhaeuser timber empire, assumed control of the timber giant after a strong career as a mill foreman and general manager. Under his leadership, the Weyerhaeuser Corporation, as it is now known, has absorbed several new businesses and has expanded the core timber business.
