IAU-URSI HISTORICAL RADIO ASTRONOMY WORKING GROUP

Biographical Memoirs


The intent of the Biographical Memoirs of the Working Group is to provide a collection of short biographies of our deceased colleagues documenting their professional contributions in radio astronomy. We do not aspire to create an exhaustive collection of in-depth biographies. If we are the first to publish a memoir (ahead of AAS, IAU, etc.), we request that you ask our (and our author's) permission to re-publish. If a memoir has been published elsewhere (AAS, Biographical Memoirs of the Royal Society, etc.), we will normally post a link to the existing memoir rather than creating a new one. We will occasionally, with permission, re-publish a memoir from elsewhere; we make decisions to do so on a case-by-case basis. We routinely provide memoirs of IAU members written for this page to the IAU for inclusion on the main IAU Web site.
