Biographical / Historical
Hollis Todd was a pillar and a cornerstone upon whom the School of Photographic Arts and Sciences was constructed. He was a faculty member at RIT and the School of Photography (which was to become the School of Photographic Arts and Sciences) from 1946 until 1976 and taught photographic physics, sensitometry and mathematics. In 1966 he was honored with the RIT Outstanding Teacher Award. His contributions were particularly influential in a philosophy that permeated the school over the years and gave it a very distinct "flavor" and a wide ranging "menu" when compared to others.
