Commission des Vitesses Radiales

  • David S. Evans
Conference paper
Part of the International Astronomical Union Transactions book series (IAUT, volume 13B)

Abstract

The Commission suffered a severe loss by the death on 8 April, 1966 of its President, Robert Methven Petrie, a few weeks before his 60th birthday. Well known to astronomers throughout the world, Petrie was, at the time of his death, Dominion Astronomer of Canada and Director of the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory at Victoria, British Columbia. He was a Vice-President of the IAU from 1958 until 1964. He served as a member of Commission 30 from 1950 onwards, being its Vice-President from 1961 to 1964, when he became President. From 1950 to 1955 he was President of the Sub-Commission on Standard Wavelengths.
