Abstract

We start by scanning the first 25 volumes of the Astrophysical Journal and listing some of the famous scientists who contributed papers. Then we scan the whole 100 years of the Journal to find when major changes were made. The more prolific authors with the longest publication records are listed, as well as the most prolific ones before 1944. Finally, in giving data on pages and papers published, we find that the largest impact on astrophysical publication was not due to the post-Sputnik era or periods of high funding; rather, it was due to the development of atomic physics in the 1930s and earlier.
