Edward Swift

Edward Swift at the age of 13 with his parents Lewis Swift and Caroline Topping Swift

Edward Swift found 25 NGC-objects and 23 IC-objects; all were new, ecxept one: IC 1496, discovered by Parrish. Swift's son observed with the 16" Refractor at Warner Observatory, Rochester, which was later installed on Echo Mountain, California. All objects were published by his father. Lewis Swift re-discovered NGC 5502 (2 days later) and IC 853, later catalogued by Dreyer as NGC 5503 and IC 4205, respectively.
