Scope and Content Note
The Williams College Observatory Meteorological Records, 1816-1945, contains the volumes of Meteorological observations taken from the Williams College 'old observatory', most likely the Hopkins Memorial Observatory. Students, and Professors Dewey, Kellogg, and Albert Hopkins, recorded the observations on month-by-month charts. The observations were done at first on a local basis, but were later conducted under the auspices of the War Department and the Department of Agriculture. The material is arranged in chronological order.
