These are the sources that I could come up with quickly.
Probably the most concise source is Optical Radiation Measurements Volume 1
Radiometry, by Franc Grum and Richard J Becherer, Academic Press, 1979, ISBN
0-12-304901-6 (v. 1). While the whole book is great, chapter 5 is what you
are looking for. Volume 2 covers Color and would be a good adjunct to this.
Another great source that has more history in it is Color Science: concepts
and methods, quantitive data a formulas by Gunter Wyszecki and W. S. Styles,
John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 1967, Library of Congress Catalog Number: 66-26763.
There is a second edition of this book that is more up-to-date, but then you
miss some of the history. This book also has a wealth of tables and data for
almost everything having to do with color. The newest edition has all the
197x additions to color data including the CIE 1976 color difference
equations. This book also contains a wonderful treatise on filters and how
to design them. If you had to have only one book, this is it.
The Science of Color by the Committee on Colorimetry Optical Society of
America, Thomas Y Crowell Company, 1953 Library of Congress Catalog Number:
Robertson, A. R. (1968)J. Opt. Soc. Am. v. 58, p.1528 This is the reference
for the Fortran program for correlated color temperature. I believe the
listing is not provided, but the background for it is. Radiometry by Grum
and Becherer has a listing of a Fortran program for this.
Principles of Color Photography by Evans, Hanson, and Brewer, John Wiley &
Sons, 1953, Library of Congress Catolog Card Number: 53-6722. Great for how
you get all those colors from only three dyes.
ASTM Standards on Color and Appearance Measurement. Available from ASTM, 1916
Race St., Philadelphia, PA 19103. First edition was 1984, there is at least
one more recent edition, possibly two.
Internaltional Commission on Lighting (CIE)

I am still missing the reference to the closed form color temperature article in Color Research and Application. I'll get it to you when I find it.
