Walter Orr Roberts Collection

This collection consists of writings and photographs created by NCAR's first Director, Walter Orr Roberts. Writings include Dr. Roberts' informal series called "Provocations," short essays posing provocative comments related to scientific issues that mostly focus on weather, climate, the sun, or near space. Photographs include images from his 1960s trips to Sweden, Denmark, and the then-U.S.S.R.
