If a single lens can form an image, why does our camera have several elements? A curious child, Rudolf Kingslake inquired of his father the answer to this question nearly one hundred years ago, foreshadowing his remarkable career in optics and his future influence on a newly formed branch of science. Born in 1903, at the beginning of the era of technological progress, Kinglake graduated from the Imperial College in London and was offered a position on the original faculty of what came to be known as the renowned University of Rochester Institute of Optics. Martin Scott details the life of the beloved professor who maintained simultaneous careers in academia and industry as the director of Optical Design for Kodak. Filled with personal reminisces and anecdotes from friends, family and colleagues, Rudolf Kingslake: A Life in Optics encompasses the breadth and vivacity of the pioneer and his astounding life.
