NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Herbert E. Ives, a research worker whose work in television and color photography has won him world-wide recognition, has been appointed a Fellow for Research in Color Science at the Fogg. He will carry on the work that he began there this year.

Mr. Ives, who was formerly in charge of experimental work in airplane photography for the aviation section of the U. S. Signal Corps, has been engaged in research in the Bell Telephone Laboratories in New York since 1919. He was in charge of the work which culminated in the first demonstration of television by wire and radio in 1927.

He received medals from the Franklin Institute for diffraction color photography, artificial daylight, and studies of the Welsbach mantle, and was awarded the John Scott medal for work in electrical telephotography and television. In 1932 he was Lowell lecturer in Boston and in 1933 was Thomas Young orator of the Physical Society of London. In that same year he delivered the Traill-Taylor memorial lecture of the Royal Photographic Society.

Other experiments in a method of measuring and recording colors accurately are being carried on at Peabody Museum as a part of the Anthropology Department's activities.
