Founded by Hawley C. White. This company specialized in the production of stereoscopes and views. Using techniques for mass production, White became one of the largest stereoscope manufacturers in his time. White son's Clarence and Harrie White were the photographers for the company. Many of the patents taken out for H.C. White Co. are under Harrie's name. Some of these patents included small redesigns of products done in the interests of cost savings. An example of this can be seen in the introduction of aluminium hoods, lens holder and eventually entire bodies of stereoscopic viewers. H.C. White Co. offered many different styled stereoscopes available for resale through other retailers.
