Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 25, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Neto status for optical astronomy -Tuesday, April 53, 1972 _ THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Stargazing professor heads research, team lly AliNOI.I) TL'CKEIl LONDON, England (NEA) When Professor Margaret I3ur> bldge grins slie sparkles. Her liaii- is sleek umler a glossy liHic rinse ami she looks more like the director of a suc- cessful fashion house than one of the world's loading optical astronomers. Yet in July, 1972, she be- comes director of Britain's Royal Greenwich Observatory. Prof. Burbiclge is the first woman to hold the post and it is (ho first time that the post has existed separately from that of astronomer royal After 40 years of compara- tive eclipse, optical astronomy is now limbering up in Uritain for re-emergence with world status. The plan s of Britain's Sci- ence Ilcsearch Council have laid the groundwork for an in- terrelated group of observa- tories. In the next few years these observatories will come into successive operation and re- quire research co-ordination at a 1 e v unprecedented in the discipline's history. This expansion and the de- mands it would make on the PROFESSOR BURBRIDGE new director called for an ap- pointment based on qualities unlike those normally asso- ciated willi an astronomer royal. As the British government explained when the separation of posts was announced, this opened the way for a director of Greenwich of any national- ity. The astronomer royal has to be British. To the great satisfaction of astronomers in Britain, though, the new director turned out to he a Briton. For Prof. Bur- hidge, although at present pro- fessor of astronomy at the Uni- versity of California, was born in the industrial northwest of England. She took her doctorate at the University of London Observa- tory where she was assistant director from IMS to 1050 and served as director in 1950-51. On a fellowship from the In- ternational Astronomical Union she went to the Ycrkes Obser- vatory, University of Chicago, for two years, became a re- search fellow at the California Institute of Technology in 1055 and was awarded the Research Professorship in Astronomy at the University of California in 1962. She became a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1964. Because she will Increasing- ly he directing the work of scientists who are pre- dominantly men, people ask her about the problems posed by discrimination against wom- en. She smiles but is clearly se- rious. "Where it exists, discrim- ination against women should je done away she says, adding that she has never met discrimination in astronomy. Prof. Burbidge has in front of her the task of reshaping and of rebuilding the whole fabric of British observational astron- omy. She is the most important di- rector at Greenwich for two centuries am! undoubtedly (lie most charming.
