Extragalactic nature of spiral nebulae (Hubble) and red shifts discoveries; Shane's interest in galactic distribution, superclusters/clouds and spectral classifications. Briefly mentioned are Shane's directorships of Lick Observatory and Mt. Hamilton and relationships with the University of California, Berkeley Astronomy department.
