The present catalogue gives data for 7127 stars in the northern hemisphere which appear to possess proper motions larger than 0.2 seconds annually. As such it constitutes the companion volume to the similar catalogue for the southern hemisphere published in 1957. As before, the motions have been checked on the plates of the Bruce Proper Motion Survey wherever possible but this survey covers only about 30 percent of the northern hemisphere. All data available before 1 January 1961 have been included

White Dwarfs by Willem Jacob Luyten( )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the Executive Committee of the International Astronomical Union asked me, in 1968, to organize a Symposium on White Dwarfs it became evident that members of at least four Commissions of the IAU should participate, and that the most oppor tune place, and time to hold such a Symposium would be somewhere in the British Isles and just preceding the Fourteenth General Assembly at Brighton in August, 1970. After a preliminary correspondence with Dr. D.W.N. Stibbs it was decided to accept his invitation to hold the Symposium at St. Andrews University, Scotland, while the dates 11-13 August 1970 were selected. I am sure I speak for all the partici pants of the Symposium when I express our deep gratitude to Dr. Stibbs for the admirable way in which he planned and organized this meeting down to the smallest details - the success of the conference is due in no small measure to his continuous and painstaking efforts. An organizing committee was formed, consisting of O.J. Eggen (Photometry), J.L. Greenstein (Spectroscopy), A.G. Masevitch (Stellar Interiors), V. Weidemann (Stellar Atmospheres), D.W.N. Stibbs (local chairman), with myself (Proper Motions and Parallaxes) as overall chairman
