Raymond Falconer Papers
Scope & Content Note

The Raymond Falconer Papers include film, video tape, weather data, weather forecasts, and correspondence. Much of the collection is currently unavailable until treated for mold and mildew. Falconer was a meteorologist and early research associate at the Atmospheric Sciences Research Center (ASRC), and his papers document the establishment and research programs of the Whiteface Mountain Observatory which he directed, particularly meteorological and pollution studies. Falconer's Papers also contain a complete record of his scientific activities at the Mount Washington Observatory, 1942-1946; at General Electric in Schenectady where he headed the GE Weather Bureau, 1947-1957, including his work on Project Cirrus and long range weather forecasting, as an assistant to Vincent Schaefer at Munitalp, 1957-1958, and weather forecasts he gave for Albany, New York radio stations from the mid-1960s through the mid-1990s.
