Memo regarding criticisms of Regulation VII, an ordinance proposed by the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce's Air Pollution Committee to control Los Angeles smog. Among the criticisms: the difference between smoke and smog, the difficulty of enforcing burning regulations, and the cost of collecting prohibited burning materials.
Beckman Instruments, Inc. became interested in measuring, controlling, and fighting air pollution in the late 1940s and early 1950s, when company president Arnold O. Beckman became the scientific adviser to the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce’s Air Pollution Control Officer. Many of the instruments that were developed by Beckman Instruments in the 1940s and 1950s as standalone items became incorporated into or re-purposed as smog-fighting systems.
