Bolton Biography
As described in yesterday's ADAP, a biography of pioneering radio-astronomer John Bolton has recently been published by NewSouth Publishing. Author Peter Robertson, who also wrote Beyond Southern Skies: Radio Astronomy and the Parkes Telescope, covers Bolton's life from his birth in Sheffield, education at Cambridge, and service in the Royal Navy, to joining CSIR (as CSIRO was formerly known), establishing the Owens Valley Radio Observatory, then returning to CSIRO as the Director of the Parkes Observatory. A great read!
