A National Weather Service Publication In Support of The Celebration of American Weather Ser vices ...
Past, Present and Future
This document would not have been possible without the help of Camille Dyer. Written testimonies of the Signal Service employees were voluminous, and Camille spent many hours shifting, sorting, and transposing the hundreds of pages of material. Her participation was essential. Ken Howard helped copy material in the National Archives, and his help is appreciated. Dorothy Grice reviewed the manuscript before publication; a grateful "thank you" is extended, not only to a supportive wife, but also to a good friend.
I also would like to thank Bill Proenza, Bob Manning, Dale Eubanks, Steve Rinard, and Skip Ely for their support. A special thanks is extended to Dr. Elbert W. Friday and Robert C. Landis for ensuring the publication of this document.
