1932

Abstract

I have had a very fortunate career in astronomy, benefiting greatly from numerous accidents of fate. I grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, served in the US Army Air Force in World War II, and had all my further education at the University of Chicago, from PhB in the College to PhD in astronomy and astrophysics. There, as a postdoc at Princeton University, and as a young faculty member at Caltech and Mount Wilson and Palomar Observatories, I had excellent teachers and mentors. I have done research primarily on gaseous nebulae and active galactic nuclei, but also made a few early contributions on stellar interiors and the heating in the outer layers of the Sun. The major part of my scientific career was at the University of Wisconsin and Lick Observatory, but I also had three productive years at the Institute for Advanced Study.
