Some of the vendors I believe were Phillips and >Sylvania. John Ott was a photographer who developed sophisticated time-lapse systems, first as a hobby (he worked for a bank, I believe) and then as a vocation, giving lectures and producing time lapse films for various clients. In 1958 he published "My Ivory Cellar," which describes "The story of time-lapse photography." He was not a "doctor," and had no "patients" but was awarded an honorary Doctor of Science by Loyola University for his work in time-lapse photography of biological subjects. He did, however, have theories about the use of full-spectrum lighting and its affect on living things. Jeff Lowenthal - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
