Rev. James B. Macelwane with the thirty-inch Dietrich Reimer globe, the then state-of-the art tool for true longitudes and geocentric latitudes. Otto Nuttli related that one of his first functions as a new Ph.D. was to calibrate the globe, because the map on the globe was not exactly positioned in terms of latitude and longitude. - R.B.H.
