Women In History: Annie Jump Cannon

Annie Jump Cannon (December 11, 1863 – April 13, 1941) was an American astronomer whose cataloging work was instrumental in the development of contemporary stellar classification. With Edward C. Pickering, she is credited with the creation of the Harvard Classification Scheme, which was the first serious attempt to organize and classify stars based on their temperatures and spectral types. She was nearly deaf throughout her career. She was a suffragist and a member of the National Women’s Party.

Below is a compendium of newspaper clippings on Annie Jump Cannon.

  1. Hello!

    I have a 1965 newspaper article on Capt. Robert Spitzer that was sent with a Christmas card from his mother, Nellie, from Anderson, Indiana. We found the card and news clipping in our Grandmother Elsie Burke Keesling’s belongings (I’ve not been able to figure out the family connection, as we know of no Moneyhuns on the family tree).
    If you are interested in seeing these items, I’m happy to photograph and email them, or simply just send the original items to you.

    Thank you,
    Carla Keesling
