The AAVSO has been blessed with leaders who have been exemplars for the organization, providing leadership in both a formal organizational sense and by setting the example through performance as observers. Reginald P. de Kock, Cyrus F. Fernald, and Leslie C. Peltier, three leading AAVSO observers in the first seventy-five years of the AAVSO's history, illustrate this tradition which is being carried on by contemporary observers. Brief biographical sketches and descriptions of these three leaders are presented to show how they contributed to the AAVSO, each in his own personal way.
