The publication of this document would not have been possible without the support of Dr. Elbert W. Friday and Robert C. Landis. Their confidence is greatly appreciated. Work on this project represented the cooperation between the Western and Southern Regions of the National Weather Service. The authors are grateful to Tom Potter, Harry Hassel, Bill Proenza, and Richard Hutcheon for their support.

Many people made this document possible. They helped locate persons who were employed by the Weather Bureau during World War II, and in some cases, have assisted with the interviews. We extend our thanks to them for the much appreciated help.
