Folks, here is information on a relatively new book on the history of
radio astronomy.  The site has the table of contents on
line.  The author (Woodruff T. Sullivan III ) edited a prior book "The
Early Years of Radio Astronomy: Reflections fifty years after Jansky's
Discovery" in 1984 (N4ZPT owns a copy). Sullivan also authored a
article "A new look at Karl Jansky's original data" published in Sky
and Telescope, 1978, vol 56, pages 101-105 (anyone have a copy of that
article?). Bill NQ6Z
