Amherst has one of America’s longest continuous histories of weather observation. Ebenezer S. Snell, a member of the first graduating class (1822), started and maintained the weather station while serving as professor of mathematics and natural philosophy. All of the Amherst data, starting with that collected by Snell, is held in the College’s Archives, and recent data are available on the Amherst website.
