Born 26 Mar 1789; died 12 Feb 1857 at age 67.American meteorologist who observed the whirlwind character of tropical storms. Following a hurricane that struck New England on 3 Sep 1821, he noted that in central Connecticut trees had toppled toward the northwest, but in the opposite direction 80-km further west.

He co-founded the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences and was president at its first meeting (Sep 1848).
