The first blue/green laser diode demonstrations reported in the summer of 1991 presented a hope that viable light-emitting devices based on the wide-bandgap II-VI compound were truly possible. In this paper we place those developments into the context of the 30-year research effort which has opened the possibility for the new laser diode, LED, and display devices operating in the short visible wavelengths. Active research interests worldwide have led to rapid progress in the field, culminating in the recent demonstration of room-temperature continuous wave diode lasers
