[45.02] 2MASS and IRAS Discovery of Red Supergiant Stars in OB Star Associations

I.A. McNabb, R.E. Stencel (Univ. Denver)

In 1992, Garmany and Stencel published a survey of northern Milky Way OB star associations spanning galactic longitudes 55 to 150 degrees, based on visual and IRAS data sources [A&AS 94: 211]. This compilation introduced a number of candidate red supergiant star members to these groups. Subsequently, 2MASS and reprocessed IRAS datasets have become available, making re-evaluation of these preliminary results timely. We report here the beginning of the efforts to confirm membership of candidate evolved stars in these groups, as well as examine facets of the structure and evolutionary record seen in these data. We acknowledge the estate of William Herschel Womble for partial support of this effort.
