68th meeting of the American Astronomical Society

Yale University, June 12-14, 1942. Columbia's Wallace Eckert is in the second row between the white-haired lady with print dress and man with dark suit (above the "T" in SOCIETY) and Herb Grosch is immediately recognizable towards the left above the word "OF" with goatee, widow's peak, and white shoes. At this meeting Dr. Eckert gave a presentation on the "computerization" of the the Air and Naval almanacs.
