The data contained in this report have been taken from two sources: (1) Information received from astronomers active in the field of Commission 37 in response to a circular letter mailed July 1969; (2) Surveys of special fields, prepared by W. Becker on “Open star clusters and spiral structure”, by G. Larsson-Leander on “Clusters and stellar evolution”, by M. Walker on “Young clusters’, and by P. -B. Bouvier on “Dynamical models and numerical computations’. It is a pleasure to thank them and all of those who have contributed to the preparation of this report.
G. Alter reports that after a long delay the second edition of the Catalogue of Star Clusters and Associations. (G. Alter, J. Ruprecht, V. Vanýsek), which was discussed at a meeting of our commission at the Congress in Hamburg (1964) (Trans, IAU, 12B, 1966, 336), will now be published by Publishing House of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. It is considerably enlarged, since it includes the contents of the annual Supplements published in B.A.C. between 1959 and 1967.
