CHARLES OLIVIER AND THE RISE OF METEOR SCIENCE
After years of research and writing, my book, entitled as above has been published by Springer Publishing in its Springer Biographies series.
Springer Biographies has provided links to three portions of the book on its website that can, in early December 2016, be accessed at:
The reader may especially be interested in the second PDF download link which gives a preview of pages 41-97, a chapter entitled Enrollment Began. The website also contains a list of the book’s eleven chapter titles.
Charles Olivier and the Rise of Meteor Science provides a reader with several biographical and historical topics. Among them are a biography of Dr. Olivier from 1884-1936, a history of his American Meteor Society from 1911-1936, accounts of the Society’s accomplishments, detailed biographies of 90 amateur astronomer-colleagues who collaborated with Olivier, and the sagas of meteor research organizations and astronomers, in the U.S.A and abroad, that were Olivier’s contemporaries.
