Donate in memory of C. Robert Ferguson


Mount Wilson Institute is very sad to lose one of our founders, C. Robert Ferguson.

In addition to being a trustee, Bob was, with Art Vaughn, one of the founders of the new entity which kept the doors of the Observatory open after the Carnegie Institution of Washington decided to close down operations in 1985 in favor of its site in Chile. We will greatly miss Bob, both for his hard work, and for his kindness and humor. Our thoughts are with his widow and family. Donations to Mount Wilson in Bob's memory can be made by filling out the form below.

Mount Wilson Institute, which operates the Observatory, is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit. Your donation is fully tax-deductible. We receive no regular government or institution support. Your donation of any amount is greatly appreciated!
