AMS Oral History Project

Help AMS celebrate 100 years of meteorological advances and contribute your story in a five-to-ten-minute interview.


You can share your story about any aspect of your education, career, research, or any other facet of your experiences as a meteorologist at the AMS Oral History Project Booth that will be located in Summit Peak on the 2nd Floor of the Grand Hyatt. Timeslots are available June 4–7 (Monday–Thursday) during coffee breaks, lunch breaks, and poster sessions, or you may sign up for another specific interview time. 

Your personal account will become part of the AMS Oral History Project and an important part of the AMS Centennial celebration. Please stop by or make an appointment for a specific time to talk about one of the topics below or any other aspect of your education or career experiences:

  • Your decision to become a meteorologist and what made you decide on that career
  • A teacher or mentor who made a difference in your undergraduate or graduate education
  • Your first real research project as a graduate or post-graduate
  • Your membership in AMS
  • An article from an AMS journal which made a significant impression on you
  • What surprised you—or didn’t surprise you at all—about your first job
  • Significant milestones in your career
  • How you have acted as a mentor

To make an appointment to share your story, please email Jinny Nathans, AMS Archivist or feel free to call or text (617) 492-3735. You can also stop by the booth with any questions or to make an appointment once on site.
