Harvard College Observatory, 1918

Amélie Bouvier has been given access to the Astronomical Photographic Plate Collection of the Harvard College Observatory, Plate Stacks, Cambridge, US. She will be going on a research journey from January 21st till 26th, 2019. The access to the archive was made possible thanks to Lindsay Smith Zrull, curator.

“At Harvard College Observatory, women studied and curated over 130 years of the night sky, all preserved on glass plate photographs. The HCO’s Astronomical Photographic Plate Collection (also known as the Plate Stacks) is the world’s largest archive of stellar glass plate negatives, amassing over 500,000 celestial moments captured in time, some dating back to the mid-1800s. ”
