Biographical Note

Banks McLaurin, Jr. was born in Austin, Texas, on February 21, 1924, the son of Banks McLaurin, Sr. and Evelyn Davidson McLaurin. Mr. McLaurin fondly remembered looking through the family stereoscope at views as a boy in the same way children of later generations watched TV. He kept the viewer and about 135 views throughout his life. He graduated salutatorian from Austin High School in 1941. While at the University of Texas majoring in civil engineering, he joined the Navy ROTC. After he graduated in 1944, during World War II, he served aboard the USS Portland at Okinawa. He married Louise Cromwell Morrison and had three children, Candace Morrison McLaurin Volz, Thomas Banks McLaurin and Marion Glover McLaurin Forbes. Mr. McLaurin was a member of the Episcopal Church and an avid genealogist.

With a degree in engineering, McLaurin pursued a career in the field of petroleum first with Humble Oil Company, followed by thirty years with the Atlantic-Richfield Company. His father-in-law, who had one of the first home movie cameras in the 1920s, sparked his long-time interest in photography. McLaurin’s involvement in the medium evolved from making movies and slides to still photographs. After he retired, while he accompanied his wife to antique shops and shows, he thought he needed to collect something, too, and stereographs fit in with his photography interests and fondness for travel.

McLaurin loved the stereoscopic medium and collected from seemingly every category and time period. Although he enjoyed stereo’s virtual armchair travel, he and his wife frequently traveled abroad, where he also bought views for his collection. Banks McLaurin, Jr. died in Austin at the age of 79, November 17, 2003.

Scope and Contents of the Collection

The Banks McLaurin, Jr. stereograph collection consists of approximately 9,000 stereographs, boxed travel sets, magic lantern slides, True-Vue reels, View-Master cards, 36 stereoscopes, viewers, a wooden stereo cabinet, books and back issues of Stereo World, ca. 1851-1930. The collection is arranged by state, country and subject. There are flat mount, curved mount, tissue and lithograph reproduction stereos (lithos) in the collection.

McLaurin collected in the following categories: American states, expositions, events, humor, people, foreign countries, war and disasters, agriculture, and industry. He collected approximately 9,000 stereo cards from a total of 106 countries. Besides views from around the world in various subject areas, he also sought stereos by different photographers, amassing views by roughly 800 image-makers. Some of his favorite stereos were the early, delicate French tissues.

McLaurin also acquired stereoscopes of all kinds, shapes and sizes, foreign and domestically produced, 36 in all from various time periods. He eventually branched out to include collecting later 3-D formats, Tru-Vue reels and View-Master cards and viewers as well. Because of the variety and depth of his stereo interests, the McLaurin collection mirrors and illustrates the history of the stereograph, world and social history and material culture from about 1851 to 1930. He carefully documented his stereos in a series of five notebooks leaving behind an impressive catalogue of his collection. Anxious to have his stereographs and viewers available to the public, he generously donated his collection to the DeGolyer Library at Southern Methodist University in 2000.

In Series I through 14, there are no listings of individual stereographs in the finding aid, but there are inventories in Notebook III. Some individual stereo titles are listed in Series 15 through 18. No updating of spelling or place names was done. In the boxed sets, some stereos have two numbers for a single view, one in front of the title which is a negative number and sometimes one in the middle at the top of the card for the number of the view in the series. Sometimes the copyright date is also noted as "c." on the mount and title list.
