Henry Garrett Houghton, 1905-1987, B.S. 1926, Drexel Institute of Technology; S.M. in electrical engineering, 1927, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, was a member of the research staff at MIT's Round Hill Research Station from 1928 to 1938, where his work on the physical properties of fog led to the development of one of the first practical methods of dissipating fog. He became assistant professor of meteorology at MIT in 1939, associate professor and executive officer of the Department of Meteorology in 1942, and professor and head of the department in 1945, serving until his retirement in 1970. During World War II he trained weather personnel for the Army and Navy and was a member of several committees working on infrared and heat radiation and meteorological and de-icing problems. His research focused on the nature of atmospheric condensation processes and the transmission of light and infrared radiation through fog and clouds.

Scope of Material:
Collection includes correspondence and notes about Houghton's research, including studies of the fundamental physical properties of fog; apparatus and methods for measuring fog particles; the resistance of fog and clouds to the transmission of visible light and radiant rays; and methods for the artificial dissipation of fog. Correspondence and research notes document the studies of the growth and evaporation of salt water Houghton conducted as a consultant for the General Public Utilities Corporation. There are course notes, exams, and other teaching materials from courses he taught, including Atmospheric Electricity, Ozone, Physical Meteorology, and Physical Oceanography. Drafts, correspondence, editorial notes, and reprints further explain his research on fog and atmosphere. Also includes correspondence and a final report of the 1971 MIT Committee on the Appointment Structure of the Non-Teaching Staff, which Houghton chaired. The collection contains Houghton's correspondence while councilor, secretary, and president of the Board of Trustees for the University Corporation for Atmosperic Research.


The Henry G. Houghton Award is given to an individual in recognition of research achievement in the field of physical meteorology, including atmospheric chemistry. The award is given to young, promising atmospheric scientists who have recently shown outstanding ability and are under 40 years of age when nominated. It is intended that the Meisinger Award and the Henry G. Houghton Award between them shall embrace all facets of atmospheric research so that workers in all branches of the atmospheric sciences shall be eligible for one or the other.1,6,2,12

BiographyCindy White Houghton: His father (Albert Charles II was named after an uncle since his father was Dr. Henry Spencer) was an actor, who went by Bud (he didn't like being called Albert either). Bud had a small part in Bye Bye Birdie, which was filming at the time Grace was pregnant with Charlie, which is why they were down there instead of in Carmel or Monterey. He played a Russian spy since he was fluent in Russian, he's in maybe 8 or 10 minutes of the movie and his part gets cut sometimes when the film is shown on TV. I recorded it once for the kids and his part wasn't in it... (BTW, Bud was fluent in four or five other languages, German, Mandarin, Cantonese, and I think maybe Italian and/or French, all as a result of having a series of foreign tutors and the family having Chinese servants while he grew up in China.) Bud and Grace divorced when Charlie was two...Albert was living in Hollister, CA at the time of his father's death in March, 1975. He was issued a social security card in New York. He moved to southern California in 1960 & then to Hollister. He was a retired radio broadcaster for various stations in southern California. He was stricken with a sudden illness & died at his home at the age of 63.

BiographySome argue that Walker was outdone by his successor, the Trib's other celebrated Texan, Lessing Engelking, whose yen for accuracy was such that he once ordered a reporter to spend all night in Brooklyn searching for someone's middle initial. Another Trib veteran recalls: "I wrote a story about a woman having 'a breast' amputated. Mr. Engelking told me that every woman had two breasts, a left one and a right one."

DeathSep 15, 2013Canandaigua, Ontario Co., NY, USA6
ObituaryOct 13, 2013William Pringle Houghton William Pringle Houghton, 97, of Canandaigua, died Sept. 15, 2013. For six decades, he promoted architectural preservation, appreciation of antique craftsmanship and the conservation of open land. Born in 1916 in Plainfield, N.J., he pursued an engineering degree at Rochester Institute of Technology (then Mechanics Institute). For 20 years, he supervised automotive manufacture at Rochester Products (GM), as well as naval engine production during World War II. During his first week in Rochester, he answered a classified for a room. The owner's daughter, Marie Burgert, a kindred unconventional spirit, answered the door. Bill fell in love, by his telling, at first sight. He and Marie spent 53 years together until her death in 1987. In 1948, they bought an abandoned Greek revival house overlooking a serene valley near Canandaigua. It boasted original wallpaper, three fireplaces and a spurious history as a depot on the underground railroad. It lacked plumbing, electricity, heat or water. A friend, aghast, remarked, "What in God's name do you want that old place for?" The name stuck. Bill and Marie lovingly restored Old Place to its 19th-century glory. It is now on the National Register of Historic Places. In 1955, they left city jobs to open Old Place Antiques; thereafter, they restored numerous other historic upstate homes. Bill was among the first locally to place a conservation easement on his property, thereby preserving its natural beauty and character as an agricultural homestead. He has become an inspiration for others. Vigorously middle-aged until 90, after decades helping others, he lately depended for stellar quality of life on neighbors, friends, family and present and past caregivers, notably Tiffany Pollot, Amanda Tuttle and Janice Lavoie. He was sustained by the love and support of his amazing Grimble Road community, especially by Shirley and Dick Delong, Jack and Rhea Duel, Mark and Ginny Clark and foremost - with his family's gratitude beyond words - Bill and Diane Lipnickey. He is survived by his devoted daughter, Charlotte Houghton and son-in-law Gilbert Friedman; closest friend and partner in adventure, Patti Simmons; dear nieces and nephew, Elizabeth Mueller, Mary Motte Hall and Peter Engelking; their spouses, David Barnes and Connie Engelking; great-nieces and -nephews; and their children. Bill was beloved by so many; we will miss him deeply. A memorial will follow.
