In Memoriam, William Lee Jolly, 1927-2014
The photography world has lost another important figure: William Lee Jolly, emeritus professor of chemistry at UC Berkeley, whose work helped facilitate the renaissance of inorganic chemistry in the United States during the middle of the 20th century, passed away January 10, 2014, in Richmond, CA. He was 86.
Jolly worked exclusively on photographic chemistry after he retired in 1991, working with the “Sabatier effect” and invented spectacular printing techniques such as chromoskedasic solarization and silver mirror printing. He will be missed.
In commemoration, his photographs will be on display during the month of April at The Faculty Club on the UC Berkeley campus. A reception will be held there on Thursday, April 3, at 3 p.m.
