History:  

SCANLON, the lumber manufacturing village in Thomson Township, sections 19 and 30, between Cloquet and Carlton, was named for M. Joseph Scanlon, president of the Brooks-Scanlon Company, Minneapolis. He was born in Lyndon, Wis., August 24, 1861, settled in Minneapolis in 1889, and engaged in many large enterprises of logging, the manufacture of lumber, and building and operating railroads to supply logs. In addition to his company's very large lumber interests at this village, he conducted similar lumbering and sawmills at Cass Lake, and also in Oregon, Louisiana, and Florida. The community was incorporated as a village in 1902. It was served by the Great Northern, Northern Pacific, and Milwaukee Railroads; its post office, located in the general store, operated 1901-54.
