(photo description Annie Jump Cannon joined the Harvard Observatory in 1896 to help build the official classification system for stars. Her calculations were largely drawn off the atmospheric refraction in telescopic photos rather than in situ observations; she and her fellow female colleagues earned about half of the men in their positions. The university didn't designate Cannon as an astronomer until near the end of her career in 1938)https://www.popsci.com/story/space/astronomy-women-international-gallery/
