We present a critical look at the advent of the black globe thermometer in the 1930’s by Bedford and Warner in the context of biophysiological research at the time by them and others. In addition we present new results analyzing the validity of the technique that remains common practice today. We show that it is limited spatially, temporally and materially in ways not appreciated fully by many researchers.
