- In Mysterious Universe, a handbook of astronomical anomalies (1979) :
  • Page 64: The Closing of a Famous Astronomical Problem (W.W.Campbell, Popular Science Monthly, 1909).
  • Page 379: The Lines on Mars (William J. Hussey, Science, 1892).
  • Page 407: The Bright Projections on Mars (Observatory, 1894).
  • Page 518: The Bright Object near the Sun (Nature, 1921).
  • Page 550: Spin-Orbit Resonance of the Inner Planets (Philip M. Campbell, Science, 1969).
  • Page 609: The Change of Climate and its Cause (M.Davidson, Knowledge, 1915).
  • Page 674: The Einstein Shift - an Unsettled Problem (F.Schmeidler, Sky and Telescope, 1964).

The first article in this list was written by W.W.Campbell, the fifth article was written by a Philip M. Campbell. The other articles have certain Campbells in them, it would be interesting to know who they really were (or still are). - DannyCaes Apr 11, 2015
