A Brief Biography of Von Del Chamberlain
Von Del Chamberlain was born in Kanab, Utah in 1934 where he attended public school until his senior year. He graduated from Granite High School in Salt Lake County, where later he was inducted into the Granite High Hall of Fame. He obtained a bachelor of arts degree, with major in physics, from the University of Utah in 1958, then a masters degree in astronomy from the University of Michigan. He has worked at the McMath-Hulbert solar observatory, the Robert T. Longway Planetarium and the Abrams Planetarium, all in Michigan. In 1973 he joined the staff of the National Air and Space Museum at the Smithsonian Institution, where he directed the Albert Einstein Spacearium (planetarium), administered the giant screen IMAX theater and developed educational programs. In 1984 he became director of Hansen Planetarium in Salt Lake City, a post he held until he retired in 1996.
Mr. Chamberlain was the founding member of both the Great Lakes Planetarium Association and the International Planetarium Society. In addition to developing education programs in classrooms and planetariums, he has encouraged "sky interpretation" in outdoor visitation areas, lectured widely in outdoor settings, on cruise ships and elsewhere. He is known for his research on Native American ethnoastronomy, co-hosting the first world conference on that topic. He is the author of many papers and a book titled, "When Stars Came Down to Earth: Cosmology of the Skidi Pawnee Indians of North America. Currently he teaches, lectures and writes. His writing includes a newspaper column, titled "Looking Around," published twice monthly.
Von Del Chamberlain has said that he is trained as a scientist, his experience is that of an educator and administrator, he thinks of himself as an interpreter of the sky, and his heart is that of a naturalist. The more he learns about the vast universe, the more deeply he loves the tiny Earth, this vanishingly small speck we ride upon as we explore the cosmos while each day unfolds the wonders of our lives.

The inspiration belongs primarily to one man, Dr. Von Del Chamberlain.
...
Chamberlain, DeBruyn, and Sunal were among the members of that panel.
...
In March of 1965, DeBruyn, Chamberlain and Sunal got together and journeyed to Canton, Ohio for the meeting of the steering committee- in an ice storm-but the sun came out the next day and it warmed up-a first taste of spring, and a proposal accepted to have the organizational meeting in Grand Rapids with DeBruyn as convention chairman.
