William E. Wilson (1851-1908) Work and Family of a Westmeath Astronomer

William E. Wilson (1851-1908) Work and Family of a Westmeath Astronomer
In his time, William E. Wilson had an international reputation and, although he never went to school due to his delicate health, he ended up as a Fellow of the (London) Royal Society, with also an honorary D.Sc. from Dublin University. He built and equipped the fine observatory at Daramona House, and among his accomplishments were the first nearly correct estimate of the heat of the sun; the first photo-electric measurements of the brightness of stars; superb celestial photographs; the first use of cinematography in solar physics; and he was one of the first to suggest that radioactivity might keep the stars shining.
