Was it Worthwhile?There were advantages and disadvantages in spending a year in the US. The advantages lay mainly with my opportunity to gain further knowledge in meteorology and to gain recognition by the award of the M.Sc. degree. I was asked whether I could spend another year at MIT to work for a Ph.D. but responded that family responsibility and Bureau commitments made that impossible.
The Fellowship also provided the opportunity to visit meteorological institutions in Washington, Chicago, Los Angeles and Corvallis. In Washington I was able to renew contacts with Weather Bureau meteorologists I had made during the Conference of Directors in 1947. In Chicago, although our visit was during the university recess, I was able to see Dave Fultz's rotating dish pan. In Los Angeles I had long discussions with Clarrie Palmer and met Jack Bjerknes. In Corvallis John Day and I resumed the fruitful discussions we had had in Brisbane during the war.
