The WIYN Dedication

The WIYN telescope was dedicated on Saturday, October 15, 1994, just two and a half years after construction was begun at the site in March 1992. The Dedication Ceremony was highlighted by speeches from members of the WIYN Consortium, a ribbon-cutting, tours of the new facility, and a festive celebration for 400 or so participants.
