American educator and astronomer who lectured at Griffith Observatory 1953-60, was a faculty member of UCLA from 1956, Professor of Astronomy from 1967 and Chairman of the Dept 1968-1975. He is the author of many articles in professional journals and of "Exploration of the Universe".

In the late 1970s, Dr. Abell bemoaned the fact that astrological students and "seekers" outnumber those in the more "respected" field of astronomy by a sizable margin, and felt compelled to warn the gullible that their "beliefs" were irrational. He was a member of Ciscop, a group of scientists who were adamantly anti-astrology.

His first marriage was in 1951; 2 kids; and a second marriage in 1972. Abell died of a heart attack 10/07/83, Encino, CA.
