Named for Carl C. Kiess, a graduate of Indiana University (AB 1910, Honorary D.Sc. 1963). Dr. Kiess made distinguished contributions both in astronomy and spectroscopy. His spectroscopic research at the U.S. National Bureau of Standards began in 1917 and spanned a period of 40 years. He was a member of several eclipse expeditions, and conducted two expeditions to Hawaii to observe planetary spectra with high dispersion under good seeing conditions. He was serving on the Astronomy Faculty of Georgetown University at the time of his death in 1967. (M 3508)
