William Dawes - papers on ArXiv

Two papers appeared on ArXiv today which might be of interest. Pre-prints from Journal of Astronomical History and Heritage (March 2021 issue).

William Dawes: Practical Astronomy on the "First Fleet" from England to Australia

Sydney's Scientific Beginnings: William Dawes' Observatories in Context

Both papers are by Richard de Grijs (Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia), Andrew P. Jacob (Sydney Observatory, Sydney, Australia)

William Dawes was father of William Rutter Dawes.
