Dr. Louis D. Silverstein was a pioneer in the human factors of electronic color displays and a leader and innovator of flat-panel display technology. During his short but active career, he published over 130 journal articles, book chapters and technical papers and was awarded over 30 patents for innovations in liquid crystal displays and liquid-crystal-based image-capture devices. He received many honors and awards, including the Macbeth Award from the Inter-Society Color Council in 2004 for his outstanding contributions in the field of full color electronic displays, and the Otto Schade Prize from SID in 2008 for outstanding contributions related to display image quality and performance. Dr. Silverstein was a man of great personal integrity and a mentor to many young scientists and engineers entering the field. His influence in the field of displays will be with us for many years to come.
