TVs of Tomorrow Presentation

Dr. Ben Gross from the Linda Hall Library in Kansas City is coming to present about the TVs of Tomorrow and the development of the first liquid crystal displays (LCDs) by RCA in the 1960s. He will also discuss RCA’s failed efforts to commercialize the technology that would ultimately find a home in our laptops, cell phones, and flat-screen televisions. 

 His book, The TVs of Tomorrow, is forthcoming from the University of Chicago Press.

Presented by the History and Political Science Department.
