EXPANDS BEYOND WEATHER FORECASTS:
Hewson Explains Meteorologists' New Studies

0> -

Even in militaristic fields such)
as combat surveillance, meteor-
ologists play an important role.
At the University's award-winning
Project Michigan at Willow Run,
meteorologists provide basic in-
formation on the relationship of
weather factors to the perform-
ance of surveillance sensors and

provide meteorological support to
field experimentation associated
with the development of various
bility of pollen concentration and
the United States Army Signal
Corps.
Meteorology has had a long
history at Michigan. In 1850, the
Regents were directed to provide

facilities to keep "meteorological
tables" at the University.
Tells History
The first course in meteorology
was offered in 1878, by the as-
tronomy department. The man
responsible for this early emphasis
was Prof. Mark W. Harrington,
later to become the first Chief of
the United States Weather Bureau.
From the astronomy depart-
ment, meteorology passed into the
geology departments jurisdiction.
Finally it shifted to the civil en-

gineering department where it is
now taught. Prof. Hewson was ap-
pointed Professor of Meteorology
in 1954.
At the present time the program
has expanded so much that a
number of lecturers have been
appointed and seventeen courses
are offered in meteorology. Re-
sponsibility for recording meteor-
ology observations was also trans-
ferred to the present group in
1956.
