Thurman Kelso 'Tex' Treadwell
Passed away on April 1st, 2003. Tex was a pioneer in the collecting of stereoviews, and he and Wm. Darrah collaborated on their important resource, Stereographers of the World, from which I often quote in my stereoview descriptions. Tex also initiated and carried on the listing of major stereographers' negative numbers and titles, working with many collectors who contributed information. His influence on the National Stereoscopic Association Board was significant and cannot be replaced. Yet, his life consisted of much more than stereo image collecting, as anyone who has read the three volumes of his unfinished autobiography will attest. Tex's presence here in this world will be missed, especially by family and his many friends, but his contributions to the hobby of stereoview collecting will live on.
