Harvard Archives: Annie Jump Cannon / by Lia Halloran

The Harvard Archive Collection houses personal photographs, journals and letters recounting of Annie Jump Cannon's astronomical travels to the telescope in Peru and many adventures to view solar eclipses. In addition to some pretty incredible images from Mt. Hamilton's Lick Observatory in 1889 there was also two beautiful cyanotypes of Annie riding a horse up to the top of Mt. Wilson Observatory, Los Angeles in 1913.
