Science in the Mountains: They Led the Way: 19th Century Weather Observers on Mount Washington
Dr. Peter Crane, Curator, Gladys Brooks Memorial Library, Mount Washington Observatory

Most White Mountains enthusiasts are familiar with today’s Mount Washington Observatory – but they might not be aware of the nineteenth-century weather observers who pioneered our knowledge of “The World’s Worst Weather.” This program will consider the bold efforts of the Huntington-Hitchcock Expedition which occupied the summit of Mount Washington in 1870-1871, and the two decades of the U.S. Army Signal Service weather station which followed. Both endeavors served as an example and inspiration for the founding of the Observatory in 1932.
