Author Martin L. Scott will discuss his recent book on the life and achievments of Rudolf Kingslake – UR professor, lens designer, and engineer. Rudolf Kingslake graduated from the Imperial College in London and was offered a position on the original faculty of the renowned University of Rochester Institute of Optics. The author will detail the life of the beloved professor, who maintained simultaneous careers in academia and industry as director of optical design for Kodak.

About the Speaker: Martin L. Scott is former director of scientific imaging at the Eastman Kodak Company and built the Kingslake Archive online register at Rush Rhees Library’s Department of Rare Books and Special Collections at the University of Rochester. The Kingslake Archive contains the papers and related items of two giants in the field of optics, Rudolf Kingslake and his wife Hilda Conrady Kingslake. Dr. Kingslake kept detailed records of almost everything he did, much of which is preserved in this Archive.

Technical support for this program provided by Mike Champlin of Debergerac Productions.
