Descriptive Summary

Title: Louis Borris Magid Visual Materials Collection
Identification: VAM054
Date: undated (circa 1890-1910)
Size/Quantity: 3.5 linear feet (295 items)
Language: This collection is written in English,, German,, Japanese..
Creator: Magid, Louis Borris, b. 1874
Repository: Archives & Records Management, Library, Georgia Institute of Technology
Abstract:This collection contains visual materials related to sericulture. Although most of the images are general images of silkworm production, machinery, and people associated with sericulture worldwide, there are some images directly related to the Sericulture and Manufacturing Company in Tallulah Falls, Georgia.

Biographical/Historical Note

Louis Borris Magid, a native of Germany, came to the United States with his parents after graduating from the University of Padua. While operating the Magid-Hope Silk Company in the northeast, Magid traveled to Tallulah Falls, Georgia in the spring of 1901.

He began purchasing land in Habersham County in north Georgia, propagating mulberry trees and developing plans for the silkworm industry. He promoted Georgia's climate as ideal for the culture of silk, and cited that silk had been produced in Georgia prior the Revolutionary War. By founding the Sericulture and Manufacturing Company of America, Inc., he planned to divide his large landholdings into smaller farms that Italian immigrants would till. He also became involved in various business concerns in the area. Magid published the short-lived magazine, Silk, as well as serving as the President of the Silk Culture League of America.


Scope and Content Note

The Louis Borris Magid Visual Materials Collection contains a scrapbook, photographs, lantern slides, and glass plate negatives relating to sericulture and silk production. The majority of images in the scrapbook seem to be clipped from Magid's journal Silk (the archives has volume 1, bound, in Neely Room SF541 . S4).

Most of the loose photographs depict machinery used in various stages of silk production. However, there are a few photographs that show Magid, people, and products related to the Sericulture and Manufacturing Company of Tallulah Falls, and some unidentified sericulture-related locations.

The majority of lantern slides are of Japanese origin, showing Japanese men, women, and children at work in various stages of sericulture. The slides have captions in Japanese and are numbered as in series or sets. There are a few lantern slides that have one or both sides of glass broken; they are housed in a separate box. Because most of the captions are in Japanese, the item titles are only descriptions of what appears in the slide.

The majority of glass plates are negatives of book illustrations, although there are glass plates for most of the photographs related to the Tallulah Falls company.


Arrangement

The materials in the Louis Borris Magid Visual Materials Collection are organized by material type. A scrapbook, photographs, lantern slides, and glass plate negatives comprise this collection.
