Biography of Leo M. Hurvich and Dorothea Jameson

Psychologists Leo M. Hurvich and Dorothea Jameson focused their research on understanding human color perception, bringing their theories and research to mainstream study. They focused largely on understanding the appearance of hue, saturation, and brightness.

Hurvich and Jameson began their research and collaboration in 1947 when Eastman Kodak invited them to study color perception for the company's color control division. They collaborated in 1957 to write the influential article appearing Psychological Review, titled "An Opponent-Process Theory of Color Vision".

Hurvich died on April 24, 2009 at the age of 98; Jameson died on April 12, 1998 at the age of 77.
