The Papers of Guy Stewart Callendar: A digital archive on DVD
208 (Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center)
James Rodger Fleming, Colby College, Waterville, ME
G.S. Callendar is noted for establishing the carbon dioxide theory of climate change. This presentation introduces a digital archive (DVD) of his manuscript letters, papers, journals, documents, and family photographs, including his extensive compilation of weather and climate data. Organized into eight volumes, this research-quality collection is a perfect companion to Callendar's biography. It is an essential tool for historians, climate scientists, and other scholars interested in climatic change and a desirable acquisition for libraries. Both the DVD and Callendar's biography have just been published by the American Meteorological Society.
