Isaac H. Godlove
Color Scientist
Reproduction of biography of Isaac H. Godlove from the Inter-Society Color Council News Letter No. 114, September 1954:


               Black is a somber color. Here it calls attention, and helps to express something of our deep sense of loss in the death, on
August 14, 1954, of our News Letter Editor, Dr. I. H. Godlove. His name remains on the masthead for this and the November "Jubilee
Issue" since he had both issues so near completion. His wife, Margaret Noss Godlove, who has worked with I. H. on the News Letter
for some time, will complete both numbers. Dr. Godlove had looked forward for so long, and had planned so eagerly for the Jubilee
Issue to celebrate the 100th issue of the News Letter under his editorship, that we quite agree with Mrs. Godlove in sincerely
doubting that he want a memorial issue made of it. This was to be an issue "of rejoicing and accomplishment." We therefore shall
hold to Dr. Godlove's plans for the Jubilee Issue, knowing that this in itself may be the memorial he would best like.      
                                                                                                                                                                                     Dorothy Nickerson, President

Dr. I(saac) H(ahn) Godlove was born in St. Louis, Missouri, on June 13, 1892, one of four children of Lewis and Lillie Godlove.  He
attended Washington University of St. Louis, B.S. 1914; A.M. 1915. He was a fellow at Illinois in 1917, where he was awarded the
degree of Ph. D. in chemistry in 1926. He first taught, as professor of chemistry at the Missouri State Normal School, Cape
Girardeau, 1915-l6, then as a teacher of chemistry at the University of Illinois, 1916-21, and as associate professor at the University
of Oklahoma, 1921-25. In 1923 he married Esther Alice Hurlbut of Washington, D.C., whose loss in 1931 affected him deeply, and
changed considerably the course of his work in the following few years. They had one son, Terry Francis, graduated from Lafayette
in 1950, now a graduate student at Yale, a son in whom Dr. Godlove took great pride. From 1926-30 Dr. Godlove served as director of
the short-lived Munsell Research Laboratory (under whose direction the Munsell Color Company produced the papers for the 1929
Munsell BOOK OF COLOR). He directed the exhibit on color for the New York Musem of Science and Industry in 1930-31, was special
color editor for Webster's International Dictionary in 1921-32, and directed his own color service 1932-35.

Dr. Godlove went back to industry in 1935 as physicist and chemist in the technical laboratory of the E. I. du Pont de Nemours and
Company at Wilmington where he worked under the capable direction of Dr. R. E. Rose, whose friendship he grew to prize. In 1943,
following Dr. Rose’s death. Dr. Godlove moved to the laboratories of the General Aniline and Film Corporation at Easton, Pa., where
he was associated up to the time of his death. On August 6, 1949, he married Margaret Noss of Wilmington, Del., his devoted
companion to the time of his death, and his co-worker in such activities as his News Letter editorship and his more recent work for
Webster's. He served on the Board of Trustees of the Munsell Color Foundation from the date of its establishment in 1943 until his
death; in 1948-49 he was Chairman of the Inter-Society Color Council; since 1937 he had been Editor of the News Letter. He died in
Easton, Pa., on August 14, 1954, at 12:30 A.M., after undergoing an emergency operation on August 8 for an appendix which had
ruptured. He fought hard to live, but peritonitis wan the fight.

Dr. Godlove was active in both the Optical Society of America and the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists, and
was a member of the Archeological Society of America. He served on the Colorimetry Committee of the O.S.A. for many years, and
was a joint author of its 1953 report:  The Science of Color. For many years he served either as member or chairman of the AATCC
Color Committee, and represented the AATCC in the Inter-Society Color Council as one of its delegates. His specialty was the
measurement and specification of color, including the expression of small-color-differences. He was interested also in fluorescing
colors, indeed, until 10:30 P.M. on the evening on which he was operated, he had expected to attend a session the next day in New
York of Dr. Goldwasser's committee on ISCC Problem 18: The Colorimetry of Fluorescing Materials. His avocation concerned
aesthetic problems in color, color harmony, and the history of color in art and archeology. His many articles in the News Letter on
such subjects bear witness to this interest. He was an ardent tennis player until very recent years, and was a good bridge player (he
once spent a great many months figuring out the probabilities of holding certain types of card distributions). His interests ware
wide, his intellect keen, and he was most generous in sharing his wide knowledge of the physics and chemistry of color with those
who sought his help.

The Inter-Society Color Council has suffered a great loss. From I.S.C.C. Officers, from Board members, from News Letter readers -
indeed - from a wide variety of his many friends have come the following messages of appreciation and sympathy:
It was painful to believe my eyes when I saw an Associated Press dispatch saying that I. H. is no longer with us. This is a tragic loss
which will be felt deeply by everyone who had the happy privilege of associating with I. H. We lost him too soon and his devoted
efforts to bring light into the field of color will always be remembered. He will be much missed. Whatever are the achievements of
Dr. Godlove as a scientist, they are reflected in his writings. But his associates will also cherish the memory of I. H. as a man of
sensitive perception and friendly goodness.     Isay Balirikin

Dr. Godlove was directly associated with the Munsell Color Company from 1926-1930 and served as a Trustee of the Munsell Color
Foundation from the time of its establishment in 1942. He contributed a very substantial part in the development and
measurement of the standard papers published in the 1929 edition of the Munsell BOOK  OF COLOR.  He was responsible for the
idea and a large part of the work involved in the Standard Edition section on Traditional Color Names.  After leaving the Munsell
company his continued interest and application of the Munsell notation to his various endeavors introduced the system to a number
of fields where it was previously unknown.  His assistance and advice through the nearly 30 years of our association was always
most graciously given and on matters of real concern often guided the way to an entirely new approach and solution of a problem.  
Dr. Godlove was a remarkable man.  His contributions will serve others in his field for years to come and his spirit of generosity and
friendship will be remembered always by those of us who knew and admired him.      Blanche R. Bellamy

In these hurried days when so many of us are superficial and expedient in our efforts, it was profoundly impressive to find a real
scholar in the delightful personality of Dr. Godlove.  Those who have read the News Letter will remember his reports on the history
of color, as well as the abundant and rich bibliographic material he presented.  These efforts, which must have required a
tremendous amount of time and diligent study, will long be remembered as a sound contribution to the big subject of color.       Faber

The JOURNAL of the OPTICAL SOCIETY of AMERICA has been proud to publish many of Dr. Godlove’s papers.  His work was of an
outstanding character and his services to the JOURNAL as a reviewer of technical papers has been sought often and was sincerely
appreciated.        Wallace R. Brode, Editor

We, the California Color Society, received the shocking news of Dr. Godlove'a death just prior to our August meeting.  When our
chairman made the announcement - the reaction of all members present was incredulity.  Although few of us have met Dr.
Godlove personally we have become, during the past several years, very well acquainted with him through the I.S.C.C. News
                                                                                                                                                                                       The California Color Society

I have just been told by our New York office that Dr» Godlove has died, and the news came as a great shock.  I spent a very happy
day with him only last month, and feel a real sense of personal loss.

Technically he was a great man, but others are more fitted than I to speak on that subject.  My own experience has shown me that
he was also a great gentleman, and it is in that sense that I should like to pay my tribute.  I have known him for some time by
correspondence, and always enjoyed his delightful letters and his relish for the carefully polished phrase, but when I met him I
realized that I had known only a small part of his great qualities.  The day I spent with him will always be a treasured memory, and I
mourn with you the loss to the I.S.C.C. of one of its great workers.  He was telling me of all the work he had put into the special
Jubilee number of the News Letter, and I wonder who can be found to devote so much time, understanding, and loving care to carry
on that work.       G. J. Chamberlin, The TINTOMETER, Ltd.

Dr. Godlove was one of life’s gentlemen whom it was a pleasure to know.  His modesty and courtesy was only exceeded by his
knowledge and breadth of vision.  His passing will be mourned by those of us who knew him personally, as well as by the many
readers of the I.S.C.G. News Letter who knew him only through his editing.      Chas. R. Conquergood

We, like many others, will greatly miss I.H., both as a friend and as a technical associate. His tireless activities on behalf of color
committees gained him many friends. In addition, however, we owe him a special debt of gratitude as a teacher. It was he who first
interested us in color measurement and who continually aided us in our work. From the beginning he emphasized the necessity of
continually correlating objective measurements with visual observations and thus introduced to us a concept which did not appear
in print until more recently.

Although I.H.'s publications are numerous and broad in scope, his influence on the science of color is not to be measured in
publications alone. By his generous contributions of time and knowledge he has contributed to the work of many others. We are
proud to be among those who have had the opportunity to learn from him.     Hugh R. Davidson and Henry Hemmendinger

As I think back over the years, the development of the Inter-Society Color Council has been marked by one outstanding
characteristic. This is, the large amount of voluntary effort that a number of its members have put forth. No one was more constant
or devoted to this duty than I. H. Godlove. His loss will be keenly felt but the bound volumes of the News Letter that we have will
remain as silent monuments to his work.      Ralph M. Evans

Although the Jubilee Issue of the I.S.C.C. News Letter is not to be considered as a memorial issue in honor of Dr. Godlove, it will,
however, be a memorial to him in the broadest sense. When I realize that this will be the hundredth issue under the able editorship
of Dr. Godlove, I can think of no more appropriate tribute to his ability and devotion to the Council.        Waldron Faulkner

Those who worked with Dr. Godlove through the years, knew his energy, his unrelenting zeal and his tremendous volume of work in
his chosen field. Being naturally kind and considerate, this zeal and energy were not confined to his own orbit of interests but were
extended to his friends and associates. Absorbed as he was in his own work, he always found time to give a willing ear or a helping
hand to the interests and problems of others. Dr. Godlove will be sorely missed by his many friends and associates.                         
                                                                                                                                                                                                   Genevieve German

Faith, open-mindedness, courage, and perseverance were Dr. I. H. Godlove. His faith in the Council and its members, his open-
mindedness towards new ideas, his courage to hold to what he believed was right, and his perseverance as Editor-in-Chief of the
ISCC News Letter illustrate his outstanding character. The broadness and scope of the nearly one hundred issues which he so
skillfully composed tell the history of color during the past twenty years. These News Letters represent the number one reference
to be explored by those who really want to have an insight into the complex relationships between the various branches of color.
Like many of his colleagues, I owe him a great debt for his inspiration and counsel, and for the example of integrity and tolerance he
showed in his search for the truth.     Walter G. Granville                                            

I was saddened to learn of Dr. Godlove's death, for he was one of the small group of persons who has pushed color science forward
by giving a large portion of his personal time in addition to his professional time. He was a source of much information and was
always helping the rest of us when we needed data which was available to him. Our work went forward more easily and more
rapidly because of the help he generously gave. Color science has lost a consistent supporter.      Richard S. Hunter

The sudden passing away of our former Chairman and News Letter Editor, Dr. I. H. Godlove, has made me realize, perhaps for the
first time how very wide and valuable his knowledge and work on color have been. I have worked closely with Dr. Godlove on color
names and formulas for the size of color differences and on extensions of the Munsell book by means of fluorescent fabrics. Yet
these are but a few of the aspects of color work where his ready cooperation and untiring studies will be sorely
                                                                                                                                                                                                              Deane B. Judd

Although there are several thousand miles between Pennsylvania and California -this distance was no handicap for a fine and
stimulating friendship with Dr. Godlove - his personality was such that distance became unimportant and we are sure that time also
will not dim his memory for anyone who has known him - either personally or through his writing.       Louisa and Albert King

It was with great regret that we learned of the death of Dr. Godlove.  He will certainly be missed by the physicists, the colorists and
his many friends throughout the industry. His work in connection with the Inter-Society Color Council,  also the Optical Society of
America has been most important and useful to all of us.       William F. Little

Dr. Godlove's passing is a great sorrow to his scores of friends and a great loss to all in the field of color. He will be deeply
missed.         Harold Lloyd

I will always remember Dr. Godlove’s enthusiastic participation in the discussions of papers on color at Optical Society meetings.
Frequently, when no one seemed to have a question after a paper. Dr. Godlove would rise with a revealing comment, perhaps
recounting some of his practical experiences or related experiments. His remarks would clarify the issues, and would often start
the discussion merrily on its way, so the chairman finally had to shut it off. I always looked forward with pleasure to I.H.'s comments
and found stimulation and encouragement in them. The few meetings he missed seemed vaguely disappointing. We shall all have to
participate more fully, with something like his vivacity and sympathy for new ideas, in order to maintain the spirit of discussions of
color which Dr. Godlove did so much to establish, and which he would certainly wish to have continued.         David L. MacAdam

The loss of Dr. Godlove has come as a shock to all his friends, and to all of the members of the Inter-Society Color Council. I.H. was a
part of the Council and was identified with the Council, particularly because of his untiring work as Editor of the NEWS LETTER,
received by all. In addition to this work which he did, with such enthusiasm, he was always in the center of Council and Committee
activities, for which everyone can be grateful. None of us will forget his charm, kindness and co-operation. I am sure that I echo
everyone who knew I.H., when I say, we have lost a great friend and a staunch supporter.         Norman Macbeth

Although I never had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Godlove, it seemed as though I knew him personally. The pages of the News Letter
were such eloquent testimony of the character of the Editor. I used to marvel at the patience and the thoroughness with which the
many books and articles on color were reviewed. It required a special form of ability to make complex ideas read so easily. He
certainly made a most outstanding contribution to the I.S.C.C., and through the years his name will be always identified with the
growth of that organization.    James A. Meacham

Dr. Godlove’s most admired gift was his singular ability to take a mass of highly technical data and transform it into workable
material for use by colorists and dyers. For many years he had devoted much time to the development of color tolerance formulaes
both for perceptibility and acceptability of color differences. In this he worked closely with other members of the American
Association of Textile
Chemists and Colorists Color Committee.

The AATCC Color Committee, of which Dr. Godlove was Chairman from 1952 until the time of his death, was also honored in having
him as Chairman 1943-45 and Secretary on several of the preceding and succeeding years.

It is possible that the greatest accomplishment of his career would have been the development of one or several color difference
formulaes based on the results of a study still in progress. This involves the spectrophotometric measurement and visual
evaluation of enameled panels obtained from the National Bureau of Standards and referred to as The Porcelain Enamel Institute
                                                                                                                                                                                                              Frank J. 0' Neil

The news of the untimely death of Dr. I. H. Godlove came as a great shock to me. I have known I. H. as a business associate and a
personal friend ever since the years of 1928-30 when we toiled together to make the new Munsell Book of Color a reality.

I consider I. H. to be one of the outstanding figures in the field of color measurement and specification. He has demonstrated time
and again his exceptional knowledge and understanding of the problems involved in correlating the physical measurements of color
with the psychological factors involved in color perception. Furthermore, the Inter-Society Color Council is deeply indebted to I. H. for
his part in the formation of this organization and his continued efforts to advance its interests as a leading member in its executive
body and as the faithful and untiring Editor of the I.S.C.G. News Letter.

Personally I derived a great deal of pleasure and inspiration from my many contacts with I. H. He always maintained a wealth of
enthusiasm for his work and with it all he was a pleasant addition to any group. When I last saw him in the late spring, he appeared
to be in the best of health and spirits, and it is hard to realize that I will not receive his cheery greetings any more, nor be able to
exchange amusing anecdotes with him. I can only join with you and his many other personal friends in expressing our deep sorrow
at his passing from this life.       Walter M. Scott

I was most unhappy to hear that Dr, Godlove had died on August 14. There are many monuments to his memory in his contributions
to color science and technology. Those of us who had the good fortune to know I. H. personally will have our private monuments to
his memory. With the publication of the 100th issue of the ISCC News Letter under his editorship, as a Jubilee Issue, according to
his own plans and efforts, a final worthy contribution to the world of color will have been made. I. H. Godlove will be missed sorely as
a friend, as a valuable contributor to the science of color, and as an enthusiastic editor of color information.        Daniel Smith

Dr. I. H. Godlove or "I. H," as he was affectionately known for many years, was long considered a fountain-head of color information
for the A.A.T.C.C. His outstanding accomplishments in the advancement of colorimetry are recorded permanently in scientific

Whenever color measurements would help in the understanding of a problem - for instance in the comparison of light fastness
standards for textiles - Dr. Godlove always offered to do the necessary laboratory work and wife a complete report. Whenever a
less experienced textile colorist. would  dabble in the scientific measurement and nomenclature of color, he would inevitably
consult with
"I. H." to make sure he was on the right track.
We who are interested in color, particularly as applied to textiles, lost an expert adviser and congenial friend.    E. I. Stearns

The news of Dr. Godlove'a death came as a shock. He had such a zest for living that it seems almost unbelievable.                      
                                                                                                                                                                                        Josephine J. Tomaszewski

Although my association with Dr. Godlove extended over only the last two or three years, I was able very soon to recognize the keen
mind, which, combined with vitality and a delightful sense of humor, made him a character whose presence we shall always miss at
I.S.C.C. gatherings.          Scott Bison    

The following list of papers by I. H. Godlove indicates something of the wide range of his color interests. We find the News Letter a
most suitable place for its publication since it is in the News Letter itself that so may other of his published articles and comments
appear. Considerable correspondence on textile terminology and textile color standards has also appeared both in this country and
in Great Britain in textile journals, particularly in connection with his work as chairman of the AATCC Color Committee.

sincere and numerous expressions of sympathy. It is truly heart-warming in a time of need to have so many real friends rally to your
side. We thank you all.      Margaret Godlove
