Lampland, Carl Otto
Born near Hayfield, Minnesota, USA, 29 December 1873
Died Flagstaff, Arizona, USA, 14 December 1951
Carl Lampland was involved with both of the Solar System projects for which the Lowell Observatory became famous: observations of Mars and the search for "Planet X." He also accumulated a massive collection of fine photographs of nebulae, including galaxies and gaseous nebulae, and made accurate estimates of the temperatures and temperature balances for various objects in the Solar System.
Lampland was the third of 11 children born to Norwegian parents. He received a B.S. degree in 1899 from Valparaiso Normal School at Valparaiso, Indiana. Lampland then graduated with a B.A. degree in astronomy from Indiana University in 1902. He accepted a position as astronomer at the invitation of Percival Lowell from the Lowell Observatory in 1902.
