Chicago St. Lincoln (217) 732"3331 Judy Anderson Kindred gave the device and 10/12 image plates to the Mt. Pulaski Township Historical Society Museum. Kindred reports it belonged to Kelsey Anderson. Radiopticans projected plates (similar to slides) on walls - later screens - to illustrate images of travel, lecture subjects, and family photos. The Radioptican (this one drca 1907-1912) originally was made by the H. C. White Company of North Bennington, Vermont, founded by Hawley C. White in 1874 to manufacture home stereoscopes. The White Company became the foremost manufacturer of home stereoscopes in the United States, and also sold stereo views. In about 1915, the Keystone View Company took over production of the Radioptican, which continued to be widely used in schools for the next couple of decades. Allen Schaal Photos
