A trademark used for a photocopying internal linkprocess or machine employing xerography. This trademark often occurs in print in uppercase or lowercase as a verb, an adjective, and a noun: "Juicy stories circulated . . . in a book proposal that was Xeroxed and read as an alternate beach book in the Hamptons" (Washington Post). "Letters you send should be xeroxed after you sign them" (Progressive Architecture). "To walk around the . . . campus during the strike was to be confronted with their fact sheets, their xeroxed research summaries and news clips" (San Francisco Chronicle). "The group's teacher . . . asked the children how they would feel if they received a Xeroxed thank-you card" (New York Times). "He reaches inside his windbreaker to his shirt pocket. He has four or five sheets of foolscap, xeroxes, I see, of court documents" (Scott Turow). The trademark sometimes occurs in print in figurative contexts: "Her performance was Xeroxed from her imagination" (Chicago Tribune). "And of course sequels are nothing new: Andy Hardy and Nick Charles, for instance, were Xeroxed shamelessly in earlier days" (Boston Globe).

Xerox PARC

Xerox PARC (zêr`oks pärk', P-A-R-C') noun
Short for Xerox Palo Alto Research Center. Xerox's research and development facility in Palo Alto, California. Xerox PARC is the birthplace of such innovations as the local area internal linknetwork (LAN), the laser printer, and the graphical user internal linkinterface (GUI).

Carlson, Chester F.

Carlson, Chester F. (1906-1968), American physicist and inventor, born in Seattle, Washington. Educated at the California Institute of Technology, Carlson in 1934 began to experiment with electrostatics to make copies of printed material. In 1938 he produced the first electrostatic (or Xerox) copy. He received his first patent in 1940. The first commercial rights to Xerox were purchased in internal link1947 by the Haloid Company. Later named Xerox Corporation, the company launched a photocopying revolution with the 1958 introduction of the Xerox office machine.

Communications and Media, 1946

Xerography wins support from the Rochester, N.Y., firm Haloid Co. whose research director John H. Dessauer has seen an article on "electrophotography" by Chester Carlson in a July 1944 issue of Radio News. Dessauer and his boss, Joseph C. Wilson, 36, travel to Columbus, Ohio, and see experiments conducted by the Batelle Memorial Institute, Haloid invests $10,000 to acquire production rights, and within 6 years the firm will raise more than $3.5 million to develop what will be called the Xerox copier.

Chester F. Carlson went to University of Riverside then Caltech in 1930 bachelor of science in physics worked as a research engineer at internal linkBell Labs in NYC for $35 a week.

The real trick was in preserving the image. Carlson took wax paper and heated it over the remaining powder. The wax cooled around the spores and was then peeled away.  Yes, the first photocopy (if you consider the spores of a  fungus to be a copy) had been made.

At the same time, Haloid came up with a better name for the process. Somehow the name electro-photography was not very catchy. An Ohio State professor suggested xerography from the Greek  words xeros for "dry" and graphos for "writing".  Haloid named its first photocopier the XeroX Model A,  the last X being added to make the name similar to that  of Kodak, another Rochester corporation. In 1958,  Haloid officially changed their name to Haloid Xerox,  and finally to just plain old Xerox in 1961. Of course, all good things must come to an end.  Chester Carlson, finally enjoying the profits from his  years of hard work, collapsed and died on September 19, 1968 while walking down 57th Street in New York City. He had been attending a conference and was on his way to see a movie during some spare time. Of the estimated $150 million dollars he had earned from Xerox, he had generously given about $100 million to charity.

"We used to live in the internal linkimaginary world of the mirror, of the divided self and of the stage, of otherness and internal linkalienation. Today we live in the imaginary world of the screen, of the internal linkinterface and the reduplication of contiguity and internal linknetworks. All our machines are screens. We too have become screens, and the interactivity of men has become the interactivity of screens."
