Chester Carlson and 75 years of Xerography

When: Oct. 22-Jan. 1 2014

Celebrate with University President Joel Seligman, Neilly Dean of River Campus Libraries Mary Ann Mavrinac, Senior Vice President for Research Robert Clark, President of Xerox Global Services North America John M. Kelly, and honored guest Catherine Carlson. Chester F. Carlson, armed with determination and brilliance, produced the first electrostatic image that would later become known as a Xerox copy. On October 22, 1938, in Astoria NY, Chester Carlson's revolutionary theory was "reduced to practice" and a new method of making copies was born. Join us for a special anniversary tribute to the inventor and this technological milestone. The exhibit, "True Originals: Chester Carlson's Xerography at 75" is available for viewing during the celebration, 1st Floor of Carlson Library.
