My father, Willi Lehmann, worked for many years for Westinghouse, back in
the days when they were involved in florescent lighting.  He received quite
a number of patents for phosphors, including the red phosphor that's been in
use in almost all CRT's since about the early 70's.  It was much brighter
than the original phosphor, although some people thought it was also too
orange.  I can, with only some minor disclaimers, state that my father
patented a color.
