Founded in 1942, CUAS has a long and interesting history. Throughout the years, many famous astronomers have been associated with our society and indeed many CUAS members have become distinguished astronomers themselves. This website is part of an ongoing project to preserve the large archive of historic material of the society (mostly letters, event descriptions, observation records) and allow current members to enjoy and learn about the CUAS heritage.
