Prof. Woody Sullivan Lecture, "William Herschel (1738-1822): Astronomy as Natural History of the Heavens"

Members of the department are invited to a lecture by Professor of Astronomy Woody Sullivan, one of the founders of the department's history and science concentration in 1987.  After teaching History 313 regularly since then as an adjunct in our department, Woody has become a professor emeritus, and he will introduce us to his next big project: a biography of the astronomer William Herschel.
