Henry Strohmyer started out as photographer and co-owner of the stereoview publishing house Strohmeyer & Wyman.  He took most of the pictures and maintained editorial control of both the content and the captions.  They did all of their own publishing but hook up with another 3-D company Underwood and Underwood to exclusively handle the distribution of their products.  In 1901 the Underwood Brothers, Bert and Elmer, bought out Strohmeyer & Wyman’s publishing operations and made Henry Strohmeyer Vice President of Underwood operations.
