Echoes of Scripps Institution of Oceanography in Texas

Robert Stewart
First Paragraph

During the Second World War, Scripps Institution of Oceanography trained many Army and Navy meteorologists, many of whom went on to distinguished careers. Two played an important role in the founding of the oceanography department at the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas, now known as Texas A&M University. Ultimately, their work led to the founding of the meteorology and ocean engineering departments at the university (Brooks, 1994).
