I found the attached photo in Melvyn Taylor’s archive. No details are given, but I think it is a picture of the renowned American observer Walter Scott Houston (1912-1993). Can anyone confirm this?
‘Scotty’, as he was known, was active in many fields of amateur astronomy, and is particularly remembered for his Deep-Sky Wonders column in Sky & Telescope.
In Melvyn’s tribute to Scotty in the 1994 March VSS Circular No. 79, he writes that he met him in 1990 July at the European meeting of the AAVSO in Belgium. Unfortunately, Melvyn’s 1990 Observing Diary doesn’t mention this meeting.
