Notes:
William Maertz was a member of well known North Milwaukee family that moved there in 1903. Several family members, including Maertz, his father, brother Edward, and his brother-in-law were actively involved in owning and managing area movie theaters, and another, brother, John, owned the Maertz Department Store. William Maertz worked for Schuster's Department Store and eventually became their art buyer.
Summary:
Lantern slides and stereographs produced by several companies: Keystone View Co., Better America Lecture Service, Inc., American Press Association, J. Stanley-Brown, William H. Rau, and J. F. Maertz Department Store. The majority of the lantern slides and stereographs in the Collection were clearly designed for use in audio-visual educational presentations of information about the United States, other countries, history, society, etc. Many are accompanied by descriptive text, in some instances on small cards - one card for each slide - and in other instances directly on the back of a stereoview. A few of the lantern slides (those of the J. F. Maertz Department Store of Milwaukee, Wisconsin) are advertisements for consumer products.
