Abstract

Since the time of the cave dwellers men have found artificial illumination a convenience if not a necessity; but only within the present century has the design of illumination system been considered for such importance as to become a special branch of engineering. In fact the first American college course bearing the name illumination was planned and taught by the writer in 1901. This was given at the University of Colorado and occupied two periods a week for a semester. The profession is so new that it is not mentioned in even the most recent dictionaries; so it is thought that it will be of interest to the members of the Iowa Academy of Science to learn of the problems of the illuminating engineer and the materials with which he works.
