What kind of wood are scrabble tiles made from?

I was playing a game of scrabble the other night, and got to wondering what wood the tiles were made from.

Anyone want to help fight my ignorance...

It was Vermont Maple, and may very well still be for what I know, but that 1998 article says the Scrabble tile factory was closing down.
