Frederic Eugene Ives (1856-1937), whose image is reproduced here using the halftone process, introduced the first commercially viable halftone method. He ran the photographic laboratory at Cornell University (1874-1878) where he conducted research that revolutionized the newspaper industry. Ives was also a pioneer of early color photographic processes and anaglyph three-dimensional photography and film.
