    Thank you for a very interesting Government report. I am a photographer who does research into historical colour negative and print processes, Kodak, Agfa, Gevacolor, Pakolor etc.
    Paragraph 37 was particulary interesting on Kodacolor film in the 1950s and also paragraph 24 on the consent decree.
    I made my first colour prints in 1969, on - Kodak Paper!
    Thanks again MDT

    Approximately 40 years, in fact.

    (No need to thank me - it was the 'in 1969' that was the giveaway :D)

    And 1969 is far younger than I am as well. Remember that 10 years before that, I was taking pictures in South East Asia in the USAF.

    There is a more modern treatment of Kodak in a book about the Kodak Research Labs edited by Jack Thirtle. It is probably a lot more informative than that article and has a lot more details being quite long and filled with photos.

    But, just like any company sponsored effort, it is politically correct and has a lot of omissions or outright errors due to the fact that it was written by humans. Jack was a friend of mine, and close associate. I now proudly have his old copy of Mees, autographed and given to me when the new edition of Mees and James came out.

    PE,

    Could you give some bibliographic information on that book edited by Jack Thritle?
