3D Society to present first Lloyd award

No recipient has yet been announced

Suzanne Lloyd, granddaughter of Harold Lloyd, will present the Intl. 3D Society’s first annual Harold Lloyd Award on October 5. No recipient has yet been announced.

Lloyd, who died in 1971, had a career that spanned acting, directing and producing. In 1947 he began photographing with a stereoscopic still camera and amassed a vast collection of 3D images that included people such as Marilyn Monroe, Humphry Bogart and Ronald Reagan. In 1950 he served as the first president of the Hollywood Stereoscopic Society.

Even after the 3D fad of the 50’s faded, Lloyd remained confident the medium would succeed. “Eventually we will have found some medium to bring back 3D pictures because there, like talking and like color, is another dimension,” he told a Columbia University researcher.

The award will recognize “individuals whose visionary and distinguished contributions have advanced the art and technologies of stereoscopic 3D.”

“Mr. Lloyd not only believed in 3D, he left us with the concept of a 3D society,” said Intl. 3D Society prexy Jim Chabin. “He pioneered the trail we travel today.”
