Wayne Carlson has posted this website for his course at Ohio State University entitled A Critical History of Computer Graphics and Animation. The author provides a historical timeline for the development of computer-generated imagery that begins with the Chinese abacus and goes on to highlight various other computer-graphics related inventions. The Short History of CCRG/ACCAD, which highlights the developments of the Computer Graphics Research Group (CGRG) and other projects at Ohio State over the years, is accompanied by images and videos of animation. The CGI Family tree lists the various institutions and individuals that have contributed to the discipline along with a short description of those contributions. The Supplementary section provides links to related articles and technical papers available online.
