Caption: Antonia Caetana de Paiva Pereira Maury (1866-1952), US astronomer. Maury worked at Harvard College Observatory from 1889 as an assistant to Edward Pickering. Much of her work was on the classification of stellar spectra for the Henry Draper star catalogue. She made the important proposal that not just the absence or presence of a particular spectral line was important but also its appearance. She also studied the spectra of binary stars. Maury was awarded the Annie Jump Cannon Award in Astronomy in 1943 by the American Astronomical Society (AAS). Photographed at Harvard College Observatory, USA.Restrictions:
