Today we send congratulations to Dr. Bob Simpson on his 102nd birthday.  Bob was the first director of the National Hurricane Research Project (NHRP) which eventually became the Hurricane Research Division of the Atlantic Oceanographic and Atmospheric Laboratory.  In addition to being a pioneer in the field of tropical cyclone research, he and his late wife Joanne were invaluable mentors to scores of meteorologists around the world.
