Very good Michael. That'd look great in any mag. Succint, to the point and nicely illustrated. Well done! And thanks for the info - very interesting.

I found preparing the article very interesting and educational. The idea came about from reading an article earlier today in the January 1968 issue of S&T, a few months after Hertzsprung died. From that, I decided to do some further study into the man and it sort of ended up where it is now.

Excellent article. Just one small typo.
You said that Russel was unaware of the German's work.
Hertzsprung was Danish of course.
