    I’m trying to look up Alfred Goodwin who was Secretary of the Ipswich & District Astronomical Astronomical society until he had a heart attack in1957. Have you any links?
    (I remember as a small child watch Saturn at Orwell Park and being tired and very cold.)

      Dear Richard

      I am afraid I have no information on the person you are seeking, I would suggest you contact an astronomy society in the Suffolk area such as the Orwell Society.

      Richard,
      I will raise with the archivist of the Orwell Astronomical Society, the successor to the IDAS.

      further to my previous reply, here is a link to our website concerning IDAS. Alfred Goodwin was actually Chairman for a while, acting also as secretary when the post suddenly became vacant. If you have any more details we would be grateful to see them.
