Nikon D4 + 24-70mm f/2.8G | Williams Bay, Wisconsin, 20 April 2013 © 2013 José Francisco Salgado, PhD Do not use without permission. Facebook Yerkes Observatory is an astronomical observatory operated by the University of Chicago in Williams Bay, Wisconsin. The observatory, which calls itself "the birthplace of modern astrophysics," was founded in 1897 by George Ellery Hale and financed by Charles T. Yerkes. It represented a shift in the thinking about observatories, from their being mere housing for telescopes and observers, to the modern concept of observation equipment integrated with laboratory space for physics and chemistry. The Observatory has the world's largest refracting telescope successfully used for astronomy and has a collection of over 150,000 photographic plates. [Source: Wikipedia] .

" -Yerkes (1923) The previous post on Distrust of Psychology contained several quotes from a 1904 editorial on the dim view of psychology taken by many physiologists of the era.
