1 AKIN, Wallace THE FORGOTTEN STORM. The Great Tri-State Tornado of 1925
Guilford, CT Lyons Press 2002 158574607X / 9781585746071 First Edition Hardcover Fine Fine 
xv+173pp+illus. The author was two years old when the Tri-State Tornado picked up his house - with him and his mother inside - and dropped it on top of two other collapsed buildings. Across town his father lay unconscious near his auto shop and his brother managed to crawl from beneath the ruined shop. Using first person accounts from his family and neighbours, newspaper reports and diaries, he reconstructs a blow-by-blow account of the terrible events, attempts to explain how it began and how it changed his life by making him aware of weather patterns. This led to a distinguished academic career in geography and climate. Includes Bibliography and Index.
