Target globular cluster candidates were selected using Washington photometry based on deep 16'x16' images taken at the KPNO 4m telescope and using VI photometry derived from Hubble Space Telescope WFPC2 archival images. The spectra of the target objects were obtained with the Multi-Object Spectrograph at the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope. We have measured the radial velocities of 111 objects in the field of M60: 93 globular clusters (72 blue globular clusters with 1.0≤C-T1<1.7, and 21 red globular clusters with 1.7≤C-T1<2.4), 11 foreground stars, six small galaxies, and the nucleus of M60. Description: We used the Multi-Object Spectrograph (MOS) at the CFHT during two observing runs in 2002 February and 2003 May to obtain spectra of the targets. File Summary:
