George Willis Ritchey was the builder of the first large, successful American reflecting telescopes and worked closely with George Ellery Hale, the phenomenal fund raiser and organizer of observatories; Mount Wilson Observatory stands today as a monument to their collaboration. Osterbrock shows how the relationship of these men helped the United States take the lead in developing major astronomical facilities.
