Collection consists of original meteorological and climatological data (including weather maps and charts) collected by Irving P. Krick and his associates in various states of the U.S., Alberta, Canada, and France.
Irving P. Krick received his B.S. degree in Physics from the University of California, and his M.S. and Ph.D. in meteorology from the California Institute of Technology.
