Maybe in 1931 graphic designers were predominantly male? not the
current reality, definitely...
Oh, well, maybe it corresponds with pressmen demographics... haven't
seen many presswomen.
In 1931 the research had nothing to do with graphic designers or
pressmen. Application to those industries came much later.
As a side note, the 1931 standard observer has been verified a number
of times since then by various independent experiments, so there's no
need to doubt it's validity--except of course for the error in V-lambda
which was corrected and reflected in the 1964 standard observer. Even
the 1931 observer itself is based on two independent experiments that
were in very close agreement.
