Putnam in the Paper
The Arizona Daily Sun has published a fun article about Bill Putnam, the AAC’s honorary president, and his work as the sole trustee of the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff. William Lowell Putnam’s great uncle, Percival Lowell, founded the observatory in 1894, and Putnam, a former broadcasting executive, has overseen the research institution for more than two decades. Putnam, 85, is a past AAC president and was the U.S. delegate to the UIAA for 30 years; he has long served as a counselor—and gadfly—to the club’s board of directors.
