SKYWATCHERS is an opportunity for me to present biographies of United States astronomers, some professional, many more amateurs who deserve credit for their contributions to astronomical science. Almost all of them were meteor enthusiasts, but all were actively watching or searching for some sky phenomena.
New biographies will be published from time to time. Some of this posted material will appear in a history of the American Meteor Society that I am writing. Some of the AMS' history, and the biography of its founder, Charles P. Olivier, all written by me, can be found on the Society's webpage, http://www.amsmeteors.org.
I invite your reactions to what's posted. I hope you find it interesting.
