Better magnitudes and epochs have been determined for 190 of the 379 confirmed and suspected variable stars discovered by Ross from 1925 to 1931. Accurate positions have been determined for those objects for which unambiguous identifications had been lacking. These include a number of cases for which Ross’s published coordinates have large errors.
