The AAS/Historical Astronomy Division (HAD) Obituary Committee is responsible for commissioning and compiling obituaries for deceased members of the Society. These obituaries are published as a tribute and for the benefit of future historians of science. The committee depends entirely on our astronomical colleagues, including astronomy-department and observatory administrators, who knew the deceased, for help writing obituaries. Currently there are a number of recently and not-so-recently deceased AAS members for whom we lack written obituaries.
