Guillermo González Camarena

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

Guillermo González Camarena was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico back in 1917 to Arturo and Sara.  I do not and could not find out any information about his early childhood or education.  What I can tell you is at 17 he applied and received a U.S. patent (2.296.019).  Apparently, he had formal education as my sources states he was a Mexican electrical engineer.

So, let us get to the point.  He used the invention first in 1946.  He also applied for additional patents in 1960 and again in 1962.  He died in an automobile accident in1965, he was 48.

What you may not know about Guillermo is that his invention was the color-wheel type of color television, he also introduced color television to the world according to my sources.

Having grown up with no color tv and, in fact, not even owning one until I was 30 years old, I can totally appreciate this man's contribution to my tv viewing pleasure these days!

How could we live in today's world without a color television, haha.  TV rules the roost in a lot of homes.

That is a pretty big invention. Kind of sad he did not get to really enjoy the fruits of his labor.

Hi James- what an amazing man. It's sad that he died at such a young age. I wonder what else he would have given the world.

I'm going to show my age but I remember the time when our family got our first color TV & what a delight that was. He definitely made our lives more colorful.

Hi James Dray - many probably did not grow up with black and white TV.  They might not realize what an important contribution this was.

What a shame his life came to an end so early. Just imagine what could have followed.

Hi James Dray - That was quite an invention when it was introduced.  As a child I wanted to go to the friends house that had color tv.
