He was born in Hilton, New York, in The research projects that Huff managed over the 1913. next 32 years, 1948-79, addressed hydrometeorology, Huff entered Michigan State University in 1934 radar meteorology, atmospheric radioactivity, planned and received a B.S. in chemical engineering in 1938. and inadvertent weather modification, and synoptic He worked for Eastman climatology.
