From the Board of Visitors Executive Committee


 

Thanks to Sponsors, Partners
for making 75th-Anniversary Events Possible

Through the end of April 2014, McDonald Observatory has celebrated its 75th-anniversary (counting from the May 5, 1939, dedication of the observatory's original 82-inch telescope) with more than a dozen separate speaker events around the state of Texas.

We thank the following generous donors for funding these events and for helping us create the planned 75th-Anniversary Endowment for Education and Outreach (goal $75,000).

In addition we thank the following Board of Visitors members, friends, and partner institutions for their work in making our speaker series a success.

And we thank the following donors to our special appeal on indiegogo.com to help us bring the historic 82-inch Otto Struve Telescope model back to Texas.
