She Was An Astronomer Who Transformed The Way In Which We Classify The Stars

Annie’s work was so stellar that she was made Curator of Astronomical Photographs at Harvard in 1911.

She received many honors and awards, including becoming the first woman to receive an honorary doctorate from the University of Oxford in 1925.

Annie was also the first woman to become an officer in the American Astronomical Society.

Annie eventually retired in 1940 after a career in astronomy that lasted over 40 years. In that time, she not only changed the way astronomers work today but also helped generate more respect for women working in the field.

She died at the age of 77 in 1941.
