The Brussels-Chile Connection: Reminiscences of a scientist friend (2018)


This paper is set in the context of Hilmar W. Duerbeck's passage at the University of Brussels, where for several years he was appointed as an unpaid senior scientist. As such, he became a de facto jury member for PhD theses in observational astronomy. This position also facilitated observational access to the ESO La Silla observatory. He was also the initiator of a PhD thesis project on the history of astronomical photometry at Darwin College, Cambridge (UK).
