Abstract : Many aspects of galactic astronomy have been investigated leading to 39 publications, principally in the Astrophysical Journal starting in volume 130 (1959) and ending with volume 141 (1965). The publications include research on Nova DQ Herculis, the polarization of the jet in M87, Galactic Clusters NGC457, 2281, 2539, 2548, 7654 and 654, classical cepheids in both the northern and southern hemispheres, the classification of galaxies and clusters, motions in barred galaxies, and dynamical stability of clusters of galaxies, theoretical work on the initial luminosity function, the Wolf-Rayet phenomenon, both observationally and theoretically, dynamics of galactic clusters and colliding galaxies, interstellar reddening, observational techniques in photometry, effects of a magnetic field on instability and energy distribution in early type stars.
