Gayle Riggsbee: When an Eclipse Trip Cost was only One Dollar
When an Eclipse Trip Cost was only One Dollar — Gayle Riggsbee, member of the Charlotte Amateur Astronomers Club since 1960, discusses events surrounding a solar eclipse that was predicted to occur May 28, 1900, in the southeastern part of America. Riggsbee shares how George Hale, director of the Yerkes Observatory, suggested that many of the major astronomical observatories meet at the same place along the eclipse path so that their research could be coordinated. This is the story of how participating institutions and famous (or soon to be famous) people gathered in Wadesboro, N.C., to observe the eclipse.
