Fred Rosebury


Fred Rosebury, perhaps better known as an inventor, engineer and research scientist, was an inventive and unique painter and printmaker. After quitting high school, Rosebury worked as a radio operator on tankers in the 1920s. He later studied at City College of New York, Columbia, and Cooper Union where he studied commercial art. He began work as a radio engineer and eventually joined the Radiation Labratory at MIT in 1942. He later headed the Vacuum Tube Labratory at MIT. Rosebury invented several radar devices, equipment for NASA, and wrote the seminal Handbook of Electron Tubes and Vacuum Techniques. Rosebury was also a noted printmaker and painter, exhibiting his work at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Society of Independent Artists. He was a pioneer in modernist screenprinting, becoming an early devotee of the innovative technique develped in the 1940s.
