"The story of Luke Howard, a very special person who loved and named clouds."

"I have been involved with clouds in a serious professional way for six decades. As seen in the bio profile, during the first decade I was a weather forecaster for the young and expanding Pan American World airways as it pioneered air routes to the Orient and to New Zealand and Australia, using the Martin and Boeing four engine flying boats -- the Clippers. During the last five decades I have been teaching and writing about meteorology in a college setting."
