Abstract: Many papers have been written and published on the triumphal detection and discovery of Pluto. As the sole survivor of the Lowell Observatory staff in that frustrating year of 1929, I thought that it might be of some interest to relate the `down mood' and emotions experienced by those persons involved. To do so, I shall provide a little history to illustrate the setting and circumstances of the years before I arrived in Flagstaff.
