This collection consists of reports, correspondence, financial material, and other administrative records from the Department of Meteorology, with a concentration of material dating from the mid- to late-1940s. Most of the material originated in the department's instrument laboratory, and is related to the department's research and development contracts with the United States Army and Navy. The projects represented were conducted during and after World War II, and deal with instruments for predicting and measuring air turbulence, humidity, dew point, and winds. Also included are departmental meeting minutes, files on the department's radio station, and records related to the purchase, maintenance and location of meteorological equipment.
