In 1939, a national conference convened to draw up a long list of standards for school bus construction. Sherwin-Williams color consultant Harry H. Scheid attended the conference and played a key role in the selection of the color yellow for the buses. The color that was chosen, named National School Bus Chrome, was deemed the color that is easiest to see in the limited light of early morning and late afternoon.
