    • Acknowledgments, where he is thanked for contributing details of lunar maps.
    • A section of the Introduction on the International Lunar Society (formed 1956), where he is named as the Permanent Secretary.
    • Part 1 of Appendix II, a list (for which he was largely responsible) of lunar maps and globes.
    • Part 2 of Appendix II, a list of the new names on Wilkins and Moore's 300-inch lunar map, of which he is credited with contributing many.
