"Next," The professor said in a low monotone voice.

It was hard to believe that the disheveled looking man wearing a tweed sport coat with badly worn leather elbow pads, was in fact quite adept at jungle survival and was a world-renowned expert on the rare Malayan Tapir. It was for that very reason that nearly seventy-five students and colleagues had crowded into the musty basement below the University of Nebraska's Student Union hall. They were there to hear the man speak and share his engaging slides of the rare tapir in its natural setting in the Malaysian rain forest.

"Next slide please," He said again and the audience was mesmerized by the photo of two male Tapir's in the midst of a violent fight.


The crowd gushed with excitement as the professor displayed a photo of two baby Tapirs following their mother to a wallow hole.

You may not find a slide show of the rare Malayan Tapir very exciting but back in the day before Powerpoint presentations, a slide projector was the best way to illustrate your talk. This super cool Model 500 C slide projector was made in the U.S.A. by the Standard Projector & Equipment Company of Chicago, Il, back in the 1950's. It comes in its own portable hard carrying case covered in faux alligator skin. The projector stands 10.5" tall and is 11" long X 6" wide and has a two tone (burgundy & putty) electrostatic crinkle finish. It comes with a removable slide loader as well as a film strip adapter. The case is 14" x 14" x 8.5" and it has a hold in the base where the electrical cord retracts into for storage. The lamp and fan work and all appears to be in good working order. Sorry no manual.

This projector is in very good vintage condition and looks like it has been well cared for over the years with hardly a scratch on it. It is very clean with no rust or signs of any damage. The lens glass is free of cracks or chips. The electrical cord is in good condition with no cracks or frays. The carrying case has some light scuffs and is showing some slight wear on the corners.

Would make a nice gift for a photographer, someone with a collection of slides or anyone who appreciates US industrial design of this period.
