The American Meteorological Society is pleased to announce a new scholarship for the 1994/95 academic year, The Dr. Pedro Grau Undergraduate Scholarship, honoring the late Dr. Pedro Grau y Triana. Medical doctor, legislator, inventor, and businessman, Dr. Grau was a hardworking, globetrotting researcher of human nature and historic events. Born in Las Villas, Cuba, in 1894, he developed several urban areas in his native Cuba. The most important was the East Havana development, a complex for a half a million residents that included a tunnel under the Havana Harbor entrance, hundreds of miles of roads, an electric plant, waterworks— the largest project of this nature ever attempted in Latin America by private enterprise. Over $100 million of new construction had been inaugurated by the time he left Cuba in 1959. Dr. Grau then went on to develop the first of the new sugar mills in Florida in 1960, and in the early and mid-sixties he became involved in efforts to develop the island of San Salvador, Bahamas, until his failing health forced him to retire. Dr. Grau died in 1979. THE DR. PEDRO GRAU UNDERGRADUATE SCHOLARSHIP Among his many interests were tropical hurricanes. Having gone through several, especially the
