Marsh Transfer 1981

Marsh Transfer 1981

The transfer of Dr. Daniel Brand Marsh's Artifacts to the RASC Hamilton Centre, on 1981 May 13th (mosaic constructed electronically from scans of two pages of the Lang album).

Page two of the transfer agreement is legible in the original scan and enumerates the following items:

2. one clock-driven mount for the five-inch telescope: this mount, in spite of the size and weight, travelled from parish to parish with D.B. Marsh and also to the 1905, 1921, 1923, 1926, and 1932 total solar eclipses.

RASC Hamilton Centre—1932 Eclipse
Scanned by Colin Haig
 
These slides are from the August 31st, 1932 solar eclipse expedition in Acton Vale, Quebec. There was an 8mm film that somebody (no idea who) transferred key frames to 35mm slides. I am not sure when actually that transfer was done or when the slides were developed. I scanned these (2006-02-11 through 2006-04-06) using a NIKON Coolscan V ED at highest resolution.
