AN INVITATION TO YOU FROM THE DETROIT ASTRONOMICAL SOCIETY
from The Detroit Astronomical Society, Inc.
From what I can ascertain, The Detroit Astronomical Society is kaput as an official body. It seems to have spawned many splinter groups as the suburbs began to grow and the population of the city diminished and just sort of officially sputtered out. The Science Center, Wayne State University and the Warren Astronomical Society seem to have become the main focal points near the city center and various other groups as the suburbs spread further north, west and south.
According to this pamphlet the meetings took place at both the University of Detroit Science Building and the Sylvia Allen Center which was one mile east of the Belle Isle bridge. I'll save you the pain of my lack of knowledge as to where any of these places are in proximity to one another and post the rest of this fold 8 1/2 X 11 page pamphlet that I bought for 10 cents at John King Books.
