Paper Abstract

This informal evening lecture covered briefly the careers and accomplishments of some of the more interesting lens designers and opticians of the past. Starting in the 1600s with the early astronomers and microscope makers, this was followed by the makers of photographic lenses after the introduction of photography in 1839. Numerous portraits of early workers were shown. The names of people specifically covered in this talk are listed below. Some other names were mentioned without comment; these are not included here.
