ViewMaster History

First a little history about the company that brings the adventure alive. View-Master® has a long and successful history. The first View-Masters'® were manufactured by Sawyer's Inc. in Portland, Oregon. The stereo viewing as we know it today was invented in the late 1930's in Portland, Oregon by William Gruber and Harold Graves, president of Sawyer's. Sawyer's was the nation's largest producer of scenic postcards in the 1920's and it would seem the viewer was an excellent extension of the two - dimensional cards.

The reels were sold in department stores across the country and are still being produced today. The company has become an international product with Sawyer's selling out to General Aniline and Film Corporation (GAF) in 1966. The company then went into a limited partnership in 1981 to Arnold Thaler who reversed a negative decline in the product. Mr. Thaler purchased Ideal Toys who was purchased by TYCO who is the current producer of View Master Products
