Papers of David E. Hogg

Finding Aid to the Papers of David E. Hogg.

David E. Hogg joined the staff of National Radio Astronomy Observatory in September 1961. During his long career at NRAO he served as Assistant Director for Green Bank Operations from 1970-1974 and again from 1992-1993, as Assistant Director for Tucson Operations from 1985-1986, as Associate Director of NRAO from 1974-1979, and as Deputy Director from 2003-2004. He was involved in the development of the Green Bank Interferometer between 1962 and 1970. He supervised the water vapor measurements that were used in the selection of the site of the VLA, and later conducted similar measurements in Hawaii and Puerto Rico for potential sites for the VLBA. He was actively involved in the early planning and site search for the Millimeter Array (MMA), which later became the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA), and in the planning and development of the Green Bank Telescope (GBT). He was a member of the GBT Commissioning group, focusing on correlator checkout, served on the team which defended NRAO in the GBT Arbitration proceedings, and was a member of the GBT Azimuth Track Review Panel. He became NRAO Scientist Emeritus upon retiring in 2005.

Outside of NRAO, Dr. Hogg has served on committees and councils for many organizations; he is a member of the American Astronomical Society, the Canadian Astronomical Society, the International Astronomical Union, and the International Scientific Radio Union.

These papers include material related to Hogg's work on the VLA, the MMA, and the GBT, as well as materials from the various organizations' councils and committees on which he served..
