We don't disagree.  I probably erred on the side of caution in my wording.  FWIW, this is what Wiki has to say:

"The first corrugated cardboard box manufactured in the USA was in 1895.[16] By the early 1900s, wooden crates and boxes were being replaced by corrugated paper shipping cartons."

Absent data, I too would guess that wooden containers dominated the market through the twenties at a minimum.
