Maxwell, J. Clerk. “On the Theory of Compound Colours, and the Relations of
the Colours of the Spectrum.” Philosophical Transactions of the Royal
Society of London, vol. 150, 1860, pp. 57–84. JSTOR,
www.jstor.org/stable/108759. Accessed 28 May 2020.

This paper describes the color matching functions for two observers, J and
K. J is the author, James Clerk Maxwell. K is apparently his wife Katherine.

Despite the small n, the biased sample, and the lack of pre-registration
and p-values, the results have held up fairly well.
