As New. No Jacket. 4to-over 9¾"-12" tall. "It is rare that a human being can touch many lives and make the world a better place-as Dorrit Hoffleit has. Dorrit is a world renowned astronomer who specializes in variable stars, astrometry, spectroscopy meteors, THE BRIGHT STAR CATALOGUE, and the history of astronomy. Her fame and influence is well-known amongst her professional colleagues. Perhaps less well-known is her influence in her role as a mentor to many young people. It was during her years as the Director of the Maria Mitchell Observatory in Nantucket, Massachusetts, from 1957 to 1978, that she led one of the most pioneering and exemplary summer research programs." This book has 176 pages and is illustrated.
