One of the worlds most important early male feminists, I believe. Said: Rursus () 08:03, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Alas, his feminism is compromised: my understanding is that he hired the women because they would work for less. Still, given the times, I suppose it's commendable that he hired women at all. Slgillett (talk) 22:00, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

Not an AAVSO co-founder[edit]

Recent (2011) research by the AAVSOs own historian has revealed that Pickerings role in founding the AAVSO was inflated/misrepresented as early as in 1919, and that in fact, Pickering cannot be regarded as a co-founder of the association[1]. I therefore removed this statement from the article.
