Robert B. Dome (October 12, 1905 - January 18, 1996) was an American electrical engineer credited with inventing frequency interlace color television modulation, which was compatible with existing black and white television sets.
Dome received his BSEE in 1926 from Purdue University, and worked for General Electric in Syracuse, New York. He also invented techniques for audio transmission, and received the 1951 IEEE Morris N. Liebmann Memorial Award "for many technical contributions to the profession, but notably his contributions to the inter-carrier sound system of television reception, wide band phase shift networks, and various simplifying innovations in FM receiver circuits." He was also a licensed radio amateur and a respected technical contributor to that community as W2WAM and may have held other call signs at other times (help needed).

—Zora Neale Hurston (18911960)
“You cant build life the way you put blocks together, Toddy.... Did Knox teach you what makes the blood flow? Did he tell you how thoughts come and how they go, and why things are remembered and forgot?... What makes a thought start?... You dont know and youll never know or understand.... Look, look at yourself. Could you be a doctor, a healing man, with the things those eyes have seen? Theres a lot of knowledge in those eyes, but no understanding.”
—Philip MacDonald, and Robert Wise. Gray (Boris Karloff)
