In the 22 years of the Color Imaging Conference, this is the first time we meet in Boston. The history research on color by Bostonians begins with Benjamin Thompson's (Count Rumford's) study of complementary colors in 1793. The history includes the experiments of Oliver Wendell Homes, William James, Leonard Troland, Alfred Munsell, Smittie Stevens, George Wald, Paul Brown, John Dowling, Edwin Land, David Hubel, Torsten Wiesel, Bevil Conway and many more. The talk will trace the many connections between physics, psychology, photography, and color that have roots in Boston.
