Material for this report was collected by the President, Vice-President and Members of the Organizing Committee. The President is, however, responsible for the form in which the report now appears. A number of special abbreviations in the references are explained in the report of Committee 27a. In addition, 3rd Harvard = 3rd Harvard-Smithsonian Conference on Stellar Atmospheres (1968). The field of Commission 29 overlaps particularly with those of 9, 27a, 36, 44 and 45 whose reports should be consulted. Since the last IAU meeting 29 has co-sponsored the following meetings: IAU Colloquium No. 4 on Stellar Rotation (Columbus, Ohio, September 1969); IAU Symposium No. 36, Ultraviolet Stellar Spectra and Related Ground-Based Observations (Lunteren, June, 1969); Second Trieste Colloquium, Mass Loss from Stars (September, 1968). We are also co-sponsoring IAU Symposium No. 42 on White Dwarfs to be held in Scotland (August, 1970). The thanks of the commission are due to their representatives on the organizing committees of these meetings. Reports from some working groups are appended. The working group with Commission 44 has not felt it necessary to submit a report (its main activity was the organization of Symposium No. 36). Miss Underhill (Chairman) recommends that the working group on Tracings of High Dispersion Stellar Spectra be dissolved.
