"The born investigator of the heavens"

I will review my biography of Jacobus Cornelius Kapteyn that is about to appear. I started some early work on this while visiting Stromlo four years ago, after Ken and I completed an Annual Reviews chapter. I will focus on Kapteyn’s organizational and astronomical work. name=Federico Lelli
