Colorimetry: Preliminary draft of a report on nomenclature and definitions.
Journal of the Optical Society of America,
volume 27, page 211 (June 1937).

Page 211: “Referring again to Table I, terms (21) and (22) represent names for units which the committee [Committee on Colorimetry, Optical Society of America–ed.] has voted to adopt. The decision was almost unanimous [16 to 2–ed.] in the case of recommending talbot as a psychophysical correlate of joule. The vote on lumerg as the psychophysical correlate of the erg was less unanimous [11 to 9–ed.]”
