In search of infrared or ultraviolet enlightenment

Colleagues!

Does one of you happen know when, give or take a year, the PRC first managed to manufacture infrared and/or ultraviolet lights (lightbulbs) domestically? If you do know, do you also happen to know which factory made such lights? And from which country, prior to developing its own production capacity, would the PRC have imported infrared/ultraviolet lights? East Germany?

Best,

Michael

Re: American named 弗兰德

My guess, and it’s only a guess, would be Liebel Bergman. I am afraid I cannot check this as my files are in New York and I am currently in Hanoi. But Bergman was an anti CPUSA Communist later affiliated with the Revolutionary Union/Revolutionary Communist Party that was Maoist. He also lived in China during the 1960s. His papers are at the Taimiment Library at NYU.

He was married to Vick Garvin who was also in China during that time.

I’m right

Tom
