Paul Barton


You may wish to include a notice in your next issue of Ephemeris that my dad, Paul Barton, passed away on July 4th after a long battle with pneumonia. He was 92. He was a long time member of SJAA and loved the evenings at Houge Park with all the children, as well as uncounted star parties at Grant Ranch with his friends.

He made many telescopes in his life including grinding the mirrors and designing the mounts. He had a strong personality and a great sense of humor. I’m sure many long-time members will remember him fondly.
