Dick and Helen Hagemeyer, the first to establish an AMS Charitable Remainder Unitrust, have served the weather industry by working at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and its predecessor agencies for more than 75 years. Helen joined the Weather Bureau staff in 1949 at the Pacific Supervisory Office (predecessor of the Pacific Regional Headquarters), and Dick began working with the Weather Bureau WBAN Analysis Center (predecessor to the Joint Numerical Weather Prediction Center and the National Meteorological Center) a year later in 1950. In 1951 Dick transferred to Canton Island in the Pacific Ocean. He held tours at Canton and Wake Islands and was the officer in charge (OIC) of Koror station in the Palau Islands. It was between these tours that he met Helen. In 1954, Helen left her position at the Weather Bureau and she and Dick were married during one of his assignments in Honolulu. In that year the Hagemeyers moved to the Marshall Islands where Dick opened and became the OIC of the Majuro weather station. During their three-year stay at the Marshall Islands, Helen worked for the Department of the Interior as the secretary to the district administrator. In 1957 the Hagemeyers transferred to Washington, D.C., where Dick held a variety of positions for the next 25 years; he was involved with leading the installation of the Cooperative Hurricane Network along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts, installed the agricultural network to support the establishment of the first Agricultural Weather Service Center at Stoneville, Mississippi, and was involved with the purchase and installation of the first network radars (WSR-57), the first hygrothermometers, the radiotheodolites (WBRT), and the upper-air minicomputers. Helen regained employment with the Weather Bureau until her retirement in 1978. In 1975 Dick joined the staff at NOAA as the deputy director of the Office of Programs and Budget and acting deputy assistant administrator for management. He returned to the NWS in 1980 as the executive director responsible for all NWS management and budget activities. He became the director of the Pacific Region, the position he currently holds, in 1978. Hagemeyer has been a member of the AMS since 1947 and he received the Department of Commerce Gold Medal in 1987 for his work as the director of the Pacific Region. 1710 Vol. 75, No. 9, September 1994
