Most of these names are familiar to me. Principally they are authors and
scientists of the past century or so. Any good University library should
be able to tell you something about them. You can scan the online catalog
to get basic information, and look up most of them in the various "Who's
Who" publications for more detailed biographical information.

For example, here's the entry for Peter Lancaster Brown's book _Comets,
meteorites, and men_ from our online library catalog here at Northwestern

         Author, etc.:
Brown, Peter, 1927-
         Title: Comets, meteorites and men.
         Publisher: London, Hale
         Date: [1973]
         Type of material: Book
         Description: 255 p. illus. 23 cm.
         Notes: Errata slip inserted.
         Includes bibliographical references.
         Library of Congress subject headings:

Since some of these folks are still active, you may be able to find their
web pages or contact information online. For example, here is Clark
Chapman's home page:


Good luck!
