C. LeRoy Meisinger: Oh the Places He Went! Part II

C. LeRoy Meisinger
In the last post, I asked if anyone could tell me what was Leroy's profession...hoping the image of a hot air balloon would stir up some interesting answers.

LeRoy's life was more fascinating than anything found in fiction. He worked as a Meteorologist for the U.S. Weather Bureau. In 1924, he conducted several experiments in a manned free balloon...which, I believe, made him the world's first Storm Chaser.
