Aspherical technology and glass research - the basis for completely new lenses
For the biographical documentation about the successful entrepreneur with a sense of proportion and social and political commitment, the editor Knut Kühn-Leitz was able to win over contemporary witnesses, companions and former employees of Ernst Leitz GmbH as authors. In the period from the mid-1950s to 1976, when Ernst Leitz III, together with his brothers Ludwig and Günther, managed the family business, innovations, diversifications, establishment of branch plants and related relocations of production and cooperation shaped the three business areas of the company: Microscopy, photography and precision measurement.
Ernst Leitz III was in the management from 1956 to 1976. Many of the constructions created under him were completely new, some are now considered milestones. This book is the fascinating documentary about this successful entrepreneur, who was politically active and who helped shape rowing in Germany. Dr. Knut Kühn-Leitz is the great-grandson of the company founder of the Optical Works Ernst Leitz in Wetzlar and has been intensively concerned with the history of this company for over a decade - today Leica Camera AG and Leica Microsystems GmbH. Among other things, he published books on Ernst Leitz I and his grandfather Ernst Leitz II, the pioneer of the world-famous Leica.
