Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Many of the significant early twentieth century optometry authors are not well known today. An example is Ray Morse Peckham (1876-1944). Peckham was a frequent contributor to optometry journals throughout the 1920s and into the mid 1930s. He also wrote several monographs on binocular vision. This paper provides a biographical sketch of Peckham and presents notes on the books he published.
