This report is a rather technical description of investigations of color vision made with the Wright colorimeter. This is a color mixing apparatus by which, as in the Nagel anomaloscope, pure colors are matched by mixtures of their complementary colors. In a series of normal and partially color-blind dichromatic observers, data concerning the discrimination of color luminosity and hue were collected. The report should be read in the original by those interested in color vision.
