Found in 57 Collections and/or Records:
Correspondence between O.J. Eggen and T.J. Deeming regarding a list of subdwarfs and high velocity stars, and concerning the best way to approach stars not listed in the CoD or Cpd.
Correspondence with O.J. Eggen and M.H. Jeffery regarding simultaneous microthermal measurements at 60 feet at sites 7A and 3A. Redman suggests measurements at 110 feet and instructions for making simple dust tests, and mentions the slow progress of the site tests. There is also a copy of a letter from D.W. Cunliffe to M.H. Jeffery, 3 September, concerning the installation of the new anemometers and recorders.
Correspondence with S.C.B. Gascoigne; M. Carpenter; V. Williamson, Siding Spring Observatory; and O.J. Eggen regarding the Anglo-Australian Telescope, including arrangements for the Technical Committee and Joint Policy Committee meetings in Australia, reports to be produced, site testing and optics, including abolishing the prime focus.
Correspondence regarding the Steering Group on Space Research, including correspondence with J.R.U. Page, Secretary of the Steering Group, and G.I. Crawford of the Ministry for Science. There is also correspondence between R.N. Quirk and Sir Owen Wansbrough-Jones regarding parliamentary questions and answers.
A letter from Miss S. Durrands, Science Research Council, 6 October 1967, regarding the flight booking for Redman's visit to Australia, and a handwritten draft of a telegram from Redman to O.J. Eggen, 7 October, regarding his travel plans.
Correspondence with Australian observatories and universities, including Dr A.W. Rodgers of the Mount Stromlo Observatory. There is also a copy of a memorandum from O.J. Eggen to Sir Ernest Titterton and D.K.R. Hodkin of the Australian National University regarding Sir Richard Woolley's Honorary Professorship.
Correspondence between Sir Richard Woolley and Professor Charles Fehrenbach regarding arrangements for the visit of Woolley and O.J. Eggen to France, and concerning the idea of designing a mounting for a Fehrenbach prism which could go on any astrographic telescope.
Correspondence between Sir Richard Woolley and Donald Lynden-Bell regarding a request for information from Professor Kreiken and comments on the progress of editing Eggen's work on galaxies.
Correspondence with M.H. Jeffery regarding O.J. Eggen's decision to resume site tests. Redman's letter of 25 November encloses graphs of anemometer wind record reductions for old site 3 and site 7A, and his views on the choice of site and on Jeffery's proposal layout for site 7A. There is also a copy of a letter from Redman letter to J.V. Hindman and Vic Williamson concerning microthermal and dust measurements.
Correspondence between Sir Richard Woolley and M.W. Ovenden of the University Observatory, Glasgow, regarding the need to postulate a greater variation of temperature across the inner surfaces of the stars than seems compatible with reflection energy considerations for 57 cygni, and asking for references to anything published by Olin Eggen on a similar difficulty with regard to the colours of closed binary stars.
Correspondence between Sir Richard Woolley and O.J. Eggen regarding NGC 6397 and Omega Centauri.
A letter from C.A. Murray to O.J. Eggen regarding membership of M67 and the proper motion studies available for work on this.

A letter from O.J. Eggen to T.J. Deeming of The Observatories, Cambridge, regarding lists of definite and probable sub-dwarfs, and concerning allied stars, the recurring nova RR Pic and VW Hyi.
A letter from O.J. Eggen to Sir Richard Woolley regarding corrections to Woolley's manuscript on the nearby stars, and giving general comments about Eggen's visit to the U.S.A.
