* This is the first year that the Assistant Observatory Director is recognized in the Board minutes as an official position. Albrecht is shown prior to that because other notes including the log books show he was functioning in that position.

** Starting in 64-65, Albrecht's position was Observatory Grounds, Buildings, Plans. Effectively, he was the Assistant Observatory Director.
