Pickering hired women such as Henrietta Leavitt, who found a way to measure the distances to faraway stars, and Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin, whose later work became the foundation for astrophysics, to process astronomical data gathered at the observatory. The advances these women made under Pickering's direction broaden211ocn011766755book19320.93Bailey, Solon IBiographical memoir of Edward Charles Pickering, 1846-1919Bibliography131ocn025588090book19150.88Cannon, Annie JumpThe Henry Draper memorial42ocn084964308book19321.00Mohr, JenkaBibliographies of Edward Charles Pickering, 1846-1919 and Solon Irving Bailey, 1854-1931Bibliography31ocn049057248book20011.00Lafortune, Keith RWomen at the Harvard College Observatory, 1877-1919 : "women's work," the "new" sociality of astronomy, and scientific laborHistory32ocn166238077book19880.81Corvin, BettyE.C.
