Abstract

Vincent Stanley Murino 1924-1993 Vincent S. Murino, retired executive assistant to the director of the National Weather Service (NWS), who in a 40-year federal career helped pioneer 5-day forecasts, the modernization of the NWS, and other advances, died 5 June 1993 in Fairfax, Virginia. He retired in 1991 from the weather service, where he served under five directors. His last assignment at NWS was as a special assistant to Elbert W. (Joe) Friday, Jr., in which he concentrated on the multibillion-dollar modernization of the agency. Thirty years earlier, while with the Systems, Plans, and Design Division of the old Weather Bureau, he played a similar key role in a major restructuring of the nation's network of forecast offices. For 15 years, until 1989, he served as executive assistant to three directors. With his broad range of knowledge of literally every aspect of the weather service, his understanding of the ways of Washington, and his exceptional ability to sort the important from the unimportant, he played a central role in the management of the service. Murino came to the federal weather service in 1951 after serving as an aerologist with the U.S. Marine Corps air groups in World War II
