Description:"The goal of this study is to document the primary weather observational path at Natchez, MS leading to the Weather Bureau observing program in the mid 20th Century. Descriptions of Natchez weather observations since the late 1950s are available through easily obtainable climatic records, with the challenge being to identify and define the roots of the path that began in the late 1700s and continued through times of significant transition in the early 1900s. Extrinsic observations, i.e., those by Voluntary (or Cooperative) observers, are considered in relation to the beginning of the central observational stream eventually established by the Weather Bureau. This does not minimize the importance of these collateral observations, but rather focuses on the original events that led to the routine, formal weather observing program of modern times"--Introduction.
