Subseries 9. Nicholas E. Wagman, 1930-1970

Scope and Content Notes:

Nicholas Emory Wagman was Acting Director from 1941-1947, then Director from 1947-1970. Wagman became an astronomer at the Observatory in 1930 and became acting director in 1941 upon Dr. Jordan's death. In 1946 he announced one of the rarest finds of modern astronomy: a dark star in the constellation Ophiucus, which he named "Alpha Opiuchi C." As a result of this discovery, he was appointed Director in 1947. He investigated stellar and astrometric binaries and undertook a comprehensive program of modernization. He played a leading role in the disseminating of information on astronomy to the Pittsburgh public community. He served as lecturer at Buhl Planetarium and conducted forums at the YMCA. He was prominent as a member of the American Astronomical Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He left the Allegheny Observatory in 1970.
