For several years, the author has corresponded with Prof. J.M.L. da Silva of the State College of Parana, Curitiba, Brazil, about the variable star RX Lepporis. We agreed that certain of our visual observations were in doubt because of certain irregularities in the published magnitude sequence for stars on the comparison chart, AAVSO chart 050001 W Ori.
Spring 1940 was the first occasion the American Association of Variable Star Observers held their meetings outside of the United States. The meetings were held at the University of Toronto, and included a paper session at the David Dunlap Observatory and a garden party (by special invitation) at Don Alda Farm hosted by Mrs. Dunlap. The meetings concluded with a formal dinner in the Great Hall of Hart House jointly hosted by the AAVSO and the RASC.
