RIT celebrates 75th anniversary of xerography
The workplace has never been the same.
Seventy-five years ago today, Chester F. Carlson invented the process of dry photocopying known as electrophotography. The innovation led to the creation of the automatic photocopier and the company known as Xerox.
RIT’s Chester F. Carlson Center for Imaging Science will celebrate the invention of xerography with a special seminar event and screening of a WXXI documentary, The Invention No One Wanted, at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 23, in the Carlson Auditorium. The film, produced in 1988, explores Carlson’s career and the sociological impact of his invention.
