The View-Master system was invented by William Gruber, an organ maker and avid photographer who lived in Portland, Oregon.  He had the idea to use the old idea of the stereoscope and update it with the new Kodachrome color film that had just hit the market. A chance meeting with  Harold Graves, the president of Sawyer's, Inc. (a company that specialized in picture post cards) got the idea off the ground and quickly took over the postcard business at Sawyer's.View-Master was first introduced at the New York World's Fair in 1939.  It was originally marketed through photo shops, stationary stores and scenic attraction gift shops. Over the years 3D reels have been produced for Disneyland, many TV shows, movies, scenic places and parks, and even for the US military for airplane/ship identification and range estimation.

THE GREAT MONTYNE
The 3-D art in this acclaimed View-Master series was created by Montyne
Montyne was a creative genius, a master sculptor/painter and performer. 
From the beginning he was devoted to the companion arts of painting and sculpture, 
ultimately fusing the two into an art form he called "dimensional painting." 
His contributions to the art world are revolutionary.
