Back in mid March Pasadena Daily Photo posted a photo of the bust of George Ellery Hale which resided for years in the library inside the Henry M. Robinson Laboratory of Astrophysics. Now that Caltech Astronomy has moved into the Cahill Center for Astronomy & Astrophysics George Ellery Hale has moved as well.

Here he is inside the new astronomy library.

I know of three other busts of Hale. One outside on the Caltech campus, one at Mount Wilson and one at Palomar. I'll put photos of the rest of them here on the blog sometime in the near future.

Hmm. There is one sitting on a tool cart at the 150-ft solar tower on Mt. Wilson. I think it's a cast of one of the others, certainly not bronze.
