American Meteorological Society Oral History Project

The American Meteorological Society Oral History Project was created as a joint program between the American Meteorological Society and UCAR and aims to capture the history of the atmospheric sciences as told by the researchers, scientists, administrators and others working in the field. The collection of interviews is especially rich in conversations which capture the memories of those scientists who launched much of the innovative atmospheric and meteorological research in postwar America.
