Title: Star Formation Histories of EDGES Galaxies: The Southern Sample

Abstract: We propose optical/near-infrared observations of three galaxies in the EDGES sample in order to measure their integrated colors and color gradients. These observations will complete the moderate-depth optical imaging of galaxies in the EDGES sample and thereby facilitate a statistical analysis of correlations between the faint structure identified in deep near-infrared observations and the dominant stellar populations of galaxies in the nearby universe. Data from the complete sample will address fundamental questions associated with the formation and evolution of galaxies in a hierarchical universe.
