Introduction:
Antonia Maury was born into a distinguished family and was well off, she was born into a family of scientists and teachers. She was graduated from Vassar in 1887. After that she became a speaker for astronomy and became an assistant at Harvard College Observatory. This is where she began her work on spectra. She noticed that different stars have different luminosity qualities. After being ignored about her findings she left Harvard and began fighting for her right to acknowledgement of the work she has done. In 1897 she finally won and was the first woman to ever have her name on the title page of the Harvard Annals, they published her catalog of over 600 stars. Her work with spectral analysis was finally acknowledged in 1922 when the Astronomical Union included her findings of the differences of stars based on the narrow and sharp lines. Even after leaving Harvard she continued her work and continued to get published.
