In 1989, in celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of The Buhl Planetarium and Institute of Popular Science / Buhl Science Center, a book was produced listing the achievements of the many Buhl alumni over the previous fifty years. The official title of the book is "Lives Touched...Worlds Changed," Fifty Years of Alumni Achievements published by the Buhl Science Center, A Component of The Carnegie, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

This book was published to demonstrate how valuable Buhl has been to thousands of students and visitors through the years. In particular, it was amazing how many people cited visits to Buhl Planetarium / Buhl Science Center in their decision to seek a career in the sciences, technology, engineering, mathematics, and computer science.

The funding received to construct and operate The Buhl Planetarium and Institute of Popular Science, from the Buhl Foundation; the City, County, State, and Federal governments; and numerous other foundations and benefactors, has had a positive impact on the lives of thousands of residents of Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania and was money well spent! Hence, the working title of this book, prior to publication, was The Proof of the Pudding.

On the sixtieth anniversary of The Buhl Planetarium and Institute of Popular Science, 1999 October 24, the Andrew Carnegie Free Library and Music Hall of Carnegie, Pennsylvania is proud to reissue this book, in electronic form, for a worldwide audience on the Internet's World Wide Web.
