Interesting Note:

There are at least three Richard Wades with significant interests in astronomy. "Number 2" is R. Wade in England, lately involved with the UK STFC. (When I met him in 1982, at ROE, we didn't annihilate.) "Number 3" is Richard Peter Wade, an archaeologist in South Africa (Univ. of Pretoria), who has been studying "past structures with possible cosmic references in Sub-Saharan Africa".
