Ray Falconer

Ray Falconer was often referred to as "Mr. Weather." From his early days as a weather observer atop Mt. Washington in New Hampshire to his work at the General Electric Research Laboratory in Nobel Laureate Irving Langmuir's Project Cirrus, Ray was an enthusiastic disciple of the atmosphere. In 1961, when Vincent Schaefer, discoverer of cloud seeding, established the Atmospheric Sciences Research Center (ASRC), he hired Ray as its first member. From that time on, Ray's boundless energy was poured into public education on weather and the environment. His popular radio weather commentaries, his articles, and his Lecture Series made him widely known as the Voice of the ASRC.
Ray Falconer died in 2002.
