Paper Abstract

The title of my talk was chosen because in 1966 the Institute of Optics had a Conference on Lens Design With Large Computers. This conference was arranged by Dr. W. L. Hyde and it turns out that it now appears that it was at the peak of the excitement involved in learning how to harness the modern large computer for lens design. Since that heyday, lens designers and interest in lens design has certainly been muted. This present conference is a timely reminder that this remarkable field of physics and engineering is strong and healthy. The people in the field can weather severe economic problems and the uses of lenses in modern technology is steadily in-creasing.
