Professor of Astronomy Maud W. Makemson, director of the Vassar Observatory, reported a labor of many years was successfully completed, and she was able to provide “all necessary conditions of any proposed correlation between the Maya and Christian calendars.”  The college had previously published Dr. Makemson’s The Maya Correlation Problem (1946), and her Astronomical Tables of the Maya had been published in 1943 by the Carnegie Institute.  She was assisted in the completion of her work by Louise Howe Evans ’52.     The New York Times
