Soliciting Memories for DAO Centenary

Thursday, February 22, 2018 - 01:24

In May we are celebrating the centennial of the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory and associated activities on Observatory Hill. We are trying to amass recollections of people who've worked or spent extended time at the Observatory, e.g., as staff, students, postdocs, visitors, etc.

Material received will be used in several ways, and James Di Francesco is planning on writing a summary for publication in the Journal of the Royal Astronomical Society. Some of the material may be posted at the Canadian Astronomical Society’s 22-26 May 2018 meeting; and a time capsule is also being planned.

We would really appreciate you sharing stories, memories and/or pictures from your association with DAO. Please send submissions as soon as possible to
