Biographies

The Mount Stromlo Observatory was established in 1957 when the control of the Commonwealth Observatory was transferred from the Department of the Interior to the Australian National University. In the late 1960s the University gained control of the Siding Spring Observatory and began operating the two as integrated observatories.
