Trimble’s Three Talks at the August Triennial General Assembly

Virginia Trimble (University of California, Irvine) gave three historically-oriented talks at the August Triennial General Assembly of the International Astronomical Union in Honolulu: The Impact of WWI on Astronomy, a Teachable Century, As International as They Would Let Us Be (from Eratosthenes, via the Celestial Police, to the formation of the International Astronomical Union), and The Time-Line of Binary Stars from Discovery to the Establishment of Commission 42 to its Death.
