Walter Orr Roberts (1915-1990) was the founding president of the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) and the first director of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). In his 30 years of association with UCAR and NCAR, Roberts inspired colleagues and friends with his keen intellect, his warm personality, and his passionate belief that research should be used in the service of society.
