Often forgotten in the history of UW's Washburn Observatory is the Student Observatory, which has served many roles and is still engaged in active astronomical research at the age of nearly 150 years!
This talk by Dr. Jim Lattis, director of UW Space Place, will examine its origins, the telescopes it has been home to, and the scientific research carried out there up until its removal from the UW campus in 1960 followed by a brief look at its new roles.
