Stan Gedzelman: Fascinated by mathematics and entranced by the power of the atmosphere and its storms, Hurricane Donna (Sept 1960) convinced me to major in Meteorology at CCNY. After earning my Ph. D. in Meteorology at MIT in 1970 I returned to CCNY, where I became fascinated with the beauty of the atmosphere, so that my interests broadened to include nature photography, atmospheric optics and art of the atmosphere. Upon retiring in 2012, I became a high school substitute teacher and wrote Sub Ways, a memoir of my experiences and ideas of teaching and, Calculus: Your Royal Road to Genius. I then revised and printed The Soul of All Scenery: A History of the Sky in Art and most recently wrote what is probably my last book, Genial Atheism.
