Title: Stereograph collection
Date (inclusive): 1846-1940
Physical Description: 2 Linear Feet
Language of Material: English
Contributing Institution: California Historical Society
Abstract: This is a collection documenting the history and production of stereographs by various publishers and photographers throughout the United States, but especially in California. The items in the collection date from approximately 1846-1940, when stereograph technology began to be replaced by moving images, and depict a variety of extremely wide-ranging subjects, from the 1906 San Francisco earthquake to the building of the Panama Canal. The West, as a landscape and a subject of interest, is well documented here, as are views of California and Yosemite in particular. Reflected here, too, are innovations in stereograph production technology, from door-to-door salesmanship to the automated production techniques invented by H.C. White.
Language of Material: Collection materials are in English.

Conditions Governing Access

Collection is open for research.

Immediate Source of Acquisition

Collection is comprised of multiple donations from various donors. Please see collection files for more information.

Arrangement

The collection is arranged alphabetically into series according to the name of the publisher or photographer. Individual biographies of each publisher or company appear at the series level, in addition to relevant subject headings. Some publishers, such as L.M. Barney and Andrew Price, do not have biographies, as there is little or no available information about them. Within each series, views are organized according to the original photographer's number, usually printed in the lower right corner on the front of each card. Any additional information printed on the front or back of card has been recorded, except in the case of very long subject descriptions. At the end of the alphabetical listing of publishers names are two miscellaneous categories – "Single stereographs by known publishers" and "Publisher unknown."

Processing Information

The collection was processed by Erin Hurley in 2019. The M.M. Hazeltine, John P. Soule, and J.J. Reilly stereograph collections were previously processed by Wendy Welker in 2009.

Scope and Content

This stereograph collection is comprised of 513 stereographs that date from approximately 1846-1940. There are stereoviews from 24 different publishers and photographers, made up of donations from a many different donors, many unknown. Additionally, there are 21 images with no identifying information at the end of the finding aid. Stereograph publishers often bought other photographers' negatives, and there was much sharing and republishing of the work of certain photographers, sometimes making it difficult to identify the original creator.
The collection is comprised of smaller, Bay Area-based photographers like M.M. Hazeltine and O.V. Lange, as well as larger, more established East coast-based stereograph publishers like Keystone View Company and Underwood and Underwood. Thus, the views represented vary widely and include views as far ranging as Alaska, Panama, and Seoul, Korea. The predominance of Bay Area and West coast photographers in the collection means that the majority of images are of California and related subjects such as Yosemite and the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and its aftermath. There are numerous views of San Francisco and its notable features, including the Cliff House, the Baldwin Hotel, Woodward's Gardens, and Golden Gate Park. There are also views of other California cities, such as Sonora, Eureka, and Mendocino, and views that document the growth of railroads and of industries such as mining and lumbering. There is a series of views by M. Rieder documenting Southern California locations such as Long Beach, San Diego, Santa Barbara, and Catalina Island. Additionally, there are some whimsical, difficult-to-categorize stereographs of President and Mrs. McKinley, a "skeleton leaves" arrangement, and a playful series depicting a wedding.

Bierstadt, C. (Charles) circa 1863-1900

Physical Description: 9 stereographs
Creator: Bierstadt, Charles, 1819-1903, Photographer

Biographical / Historical

Photographer Charles Bierstadt (1819–1903) was the older brother of landscape painter Albert Bierstadt, and was born in Prussia (now Germany) and raised in New Bedford, Massachusetts. He apprenticed as a cabinet maker at age 15, and began experimenting with photography. In 1856, he opened a photography studio with his brother Edward, offering images of the West. The studio was in operation until 1866, when Edward returned to commercial printing. Charles moved the studio from New Bedford to Niagara Falls, in hopes of finding a tourist market eager for stereoviews. He was successful, and in 1870, travelled to California to photograph Yosemite. He published books of stereoviews with his brother Edward, and, later, his views were distributed by Underwood and Underwood - a big name in commercial stereo publishing.

Hazeltine, M.M. (Martin Mason) 1865-1875

Physical Description: 46 stereographs
Creator: Hazeltine, M.M. (Martin Mason), 1827-1903, Photographer

Scope and Content

Primarily landscapes of the Sierra Nevada. Several images of mines, sluices, and hydraulic mining. Landscapes of Oregon, two views of San Francisco, and one of Comptche, Mendocino County. There is one stereo each of members of the Piute (i.e., Paiute), Pit River (i.e., Achomawi), and Yosemite (i.e., Miwok) Indian tribes.

Biographical / Historical

Martin Mason Hazeltine (1827-1903) was an itinerant ambrotypist and photographer born in Vermont, who travelled to California in search of gold in 1850. He crossed the country numerous times over the course of his life, and learned the art of dagguereotypy alongside his brother George Irving Hazeltine. In 1853, the brothers opened a daguerreotype studio in San Francisco, which they operated together until George left the business in 1855.
Hazeltine married in 1855, and had 6 children, two of whom did not live to become adults. He travelled around the California coast, including Mendocino and Shasta counties as well as the Yosemite Valley, working as a part time photographer and fruit grower. He sold his negatives to stereograph publishers J.P. Soule, Thomas Houseworth and Co., and the Kilburn Brothers, in addition to publishing under his own imprint: "M.M. Hazeltine, Photographer, Sierra Nevada Mountains."
From 1870 to 1872, Hazeltine spent his winters in Yosemite, where he opened a photograph gallery in a cabin along the Mariposa Trail. He was competitive with John James, or J.J., Reilly, Yosemite's first resident photographer, until the two joined forces in June, 1876. In May of 1878, Hazeltine opened a gallery in Reno, Nevada.
Over the course of his life, Hazeltine travelled to and photographed various Western states, including Oregon, Montana, Idaho, and Washington, as well as a number of locations around Northern California. He also owned galleries in Boise, Idaho and Mendocino (in addition to those mentioned above), where he sold his stereographic views of Yosemite. By the time of his death in Baker City, Oregon in 1903, it was said that he had "accumulated the largest and most valuable collection of scenic views on the Pacific Coast."

Jackson, W.H. (William Henry) 1870-1878

Physical Description: 5 stereographs
Creator: Jackson, William Henry, 1843-1942, Photographer

Biographical / Historical

William Henry Jackson (1843-1942) was a pioneering landscape photographer from Keesville, New York. He served in the Union Army during the Civil War, and, having been interested in photography from a young age, opened his own studio with his brother Edward in 1867. In 1870, he left his studio and his family behind to document the growth of cities and railroads out west.
That was the same year that he was hired as a photographer with the U.S. Geological and Geographical Survey - where he would work for the next 8 years. During this time, he took many photographs and stereograph images of western states like Utah, Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado. Jackson is also responsible for the first published photographs of the Yellowstone region. After the survey expedition ended, Jackson opened a studio in Denver, Colorado and continued photographing Western landscapes, in addition to commission work for railroad companies and hotels.
Around 1893-1894, Jackson was offered a job as a photographer with the World Transportation Commission, which flew him to New Zealand, Australia, North Africa, and parts of Europe and Asia. He produced more than 900 photographs for this project. Upon his return, in 1897, Jackson began working for the Detroit Photographic Company. He began to experiment with color photography and colorized some of his new and old photographic negatives, issuing numerous postcards and prints. However, postcard sales declined after World War I, and Jackson decided to retire. He published two autobiographies about his adventures as a photographer and died at the age of 99 in New York City.

Keystone View Company 1896-1906

Physical Description: 27 stereographs
Creator: Keystone View Company, Publisher
Creator: Singley, B.L. (Benjamin Lloyd), Photographer

Biographical / Historical

Keystone View Company was founded in 1892 in Meadville, Pennsylvania by amateur photographer B.L. Singley, and, by 1905, would grow to become the world's largest stereograph publisher, with branch offices in New York, San Francisco, and London (among others). Singley began by selling glass slides of local interest, and grew his business by hiring additional photographers until the company was offering nearly 50,000 images of a variety of subjects, from the Arctic and Antarctic to Theodore Roosevelt to St. Paul's Cathedral.
Between 1915-1921, the company also purchased the negatives of nearly all of its competitors (including Underwood and Underwood, B.W. Kilburn and H.C. White), cornering the market. They also manufactured lantern slides, transparencies, and viewing equipment to sell to schools - a method borrowed from Underwood and Underwood.
In 1932, to offset a declining interest in stereoviews as entertainment, they formed the Keystone Stereoscophthalmic Department and began manufacturing opthamology equipment. However, the company retained the services of a stereoscopic photographer until 1955. In 1936, B.L. Singley retired as President and was replaced by two longtime Keystone employees, and in 1963, the company was purchased by Mast Development Company.

Kilburn Brothers 1865-1877

Physical Description: 17 stereographs
Creator: Kilburn Brothers, Photographer
Creator: Kilburn , B.W. (Benjamin West), 1827-1909, Photographer

Biographical / Historical

Kilburn Brothers Stereoscopic View Company was a stereograph publishing enterprise formed by brothers Edward (1830 – 1884) and Benjamin West Kilburn (1827-1909) in Littleton, New Hampshire in 1865. B.W. Kilburn was the first to learn photography and produced stereoviews for about 10 years before his brother Edward. Edward acquired photography skills from daguerreotypist Ora C. Bolton in nearby Waterford, Vermont. The brothers ran a successful stereograph publishing business until 1910, and at the peak of their production were generating 5 million stereoviews. They produced views of local attractions and landscapes, like the White and Franconia Mountains in New Hampshire. Edward retired from the business in 1877, but the company continued to be known as Kilburn Brothers until the late 1880s, when it was renamed B.W. Kilburn Company.

Physical Description: 24 stereographs
Creator: B.W. Kilburn Company, Publisher
Creator: Kilburn , B.W. (Benjamin West), 1827-1909, Publisher

Biographical / Historical

Benjamin West Kilburn (1827-1909) was a mountaineer, Civil War sergeant, landscape photographer and stereograph publisher from Littleton, New Hampshire who co-founded The Kilburn Brothers Stereoscopic View Company with his brother Edward in 1865. When Edward left the company in 1877, it was renamed the B.W. Kilburn Company, and expanded its operations, introducing door-to-door salesmen. B.W. Kilburn himself was a member of the National Photograph Association, a member of the New Hampshire General Court, and patented a stereograph camera that looked like a gun, in the interest of eliminating the need for a tripod.
He was an early proponent of photojournalism, and documented events such as the Boer War, the Spanish-American War, the Boxer Rebellion, and the inauguration of President Grover Cleveland in 1893. He made four separate trips photography-related trips to Europe, as well as to Mexico, Bermuda and Russia, and was also interested in documenting immigrant communities around the United States.

Lange, O.V. circa 1880-1890

Physical Description: 10 stereographs
Creator: Lange, O.V., 1853-1913, Photographer

Biographical / Historical

Oscar V. Lange (1855–1913) was a Berkeley-based photographer and landscape painter originally from Hoboken, New Jersey, who is typically credited as "O.V. Lange." He documented the Central Pacific and Southern Pacific Railroads and their workers, and was primarily interested in photographing architecture in the Bay Area, including the campus of the University of California, Berkeley. He also produced hand-colored images of plants, flowers, and landscapes.
Lange lived his entire life with his sister Marie, who was also an artist. He was a member of Berkeley's active arts community in the early years of the 20th century, and was a supporter of the Berkeley Arts Colony (1906-1911). He was instrumental in founding Berkeley's first public library, and was an ardent environmentalist. He died of tuberculosis in 1913.

Biographical / Historical

John James Reilly (1838-1893) was a photographer and publisher of stereoviews who befriended naturalist John Muir and was Yosemite's first resident photographer. He owned a gallery there from 1870-1875.
Reilly was born in Scotland and moved to Niagara Falls, New York in 1866, where he produced and sold stereoviews to tourists from 1866-1870. He relocated to Stockton, California in 1870 and formed a professional relationship with photographer John Pitcher Spooner. In 1875, he opened a gallery at 729 California Street in San Francisco and produced stereoviews in association with M.M. Hazeltine, E.D. Orsmby, and J. Pitcher Spooner.
He became proprietor of the Wood's Gallery in Marysville, California - a small gold rush town. He eventually abandoned his business and family to move back to San Francisco in 1886. He commmitted suicide in 1893 in San Francisco.

Soule, John P. 1870-1873

Physical Description: 33 stereographs
Creator: Soule, John P., Photographer

Biographical / Historical

John Payson Soule (1828-1904) was a photographer and publisher based in Boston, Massachusetts, and, later, Seattle, Washington. According to the Boston Almanac, he maintained a studio at 199 Washington St. from 1861-1882. He learned photography from fellow Bostonian J.W. (James Wallace) Black, and later from Charles and Edward Bierstadt. In 1860, he accompanied the Bierstadts on one of their photography expeditions to New Hampshire's White Mountains and founded his own business, under the name John P. Soule, shortly after.
He began his career photographing Fort Sumpter and Fort Moultrie - Civil War military bases in South Carolina. He also reproduced images of famous artwork, including Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel ceiling. He began producing stereoviews around 1875, frequently publishing images by others without credit to the original photographer. Given that a number of the views here are of Yosemite and Mendocino, it seems likely that they were taken by M.M. Hazeltine. Soule purchased a number of Hazeltine's negatives and copyrighted them in 1870, in addition to selling his own negatives to fellow publisher B.W. Kilburn.
In 1883, Soule sold his business to his brother, William Stinson Soule, who, with his business partner, began operating under the name Soule Photographic Company. In 1888, John P. Soule moved to Seattle, where he continued to photograph scenes such as the Seattle Fire of 1889, and to document the growth of the growth of the city until his death in 1904.

Biographical / Historical

Underwood and Underwood was a company founded by brothers Bert and Elmer Underwood in 1881 in Ottawa, Kansas and would grow to become one of the world's largest producers of stereoviews as well as pioneers in the field of news photography.
They began by selling stereographs door-to-door, and, by 1891, had moved their headquarters to New York City, and opened branches in Canada, London, and Baltimore, Maryland. Their collection of images, sometimes photographed by Bert Underwood, included images of the Middle East, Greece, and Rome, as well as biblical scenes and photographs of important world events, such as the building of the Panama Canal.
In 1920, they sold a large portion of their catalog to Keystone View Company, which republished the images and added a "V" prefix to the titles, to indicate that they were an Underwood and Underwood view. Around 1940, the company ceased operating.

White, H.C. 1905-1908

Physical Description: 38 stereographs
Creator: H.C. White Co., Publisher
Creator: White, Hawley C., Photographer

Biographical / Historical

Hawley C. White (dates unknown) was an inventor, photographer and stereograph publisher who founded the H.C. White company in North Bennington, Vermont in 1874. He began his career as an optometrist in New York City, and earned recognition for the quality of his stereoscopes and stereoviews.
He didn't start producing stereographs until 1899, when he began to introduce innovations in automating the production of stereoviews. He may have been one of the first to use assembly line techniques such as cutting and mounting photographic prints by machine, and built a factory dedicated to mechanized stereograph production. He also printed lengthy descriptions on the backs of his stereoviews, which was somewhat unusual at the time.
Though White was a photographer himself, he employed other photographers in order to increase his output. Faced with the declining popularity of stereographs, he decided to retire in 1915 and sold his negatives, as did many others, to Keystone View Company. Keystone View Company marked their White images with a "W" prefix in the title.
