  • Notes 
    • Jim enlisted in the US Army during World War II and served in the European theatre. Immediately after enlistment they sent him to weather school at Northwestern University, near Chicago. That's when he renewed his Cornell College 'acquaintance' with Marcella Kouba. After he graduated from weather school, he was sent to England and crossed the English channel shortly after "D Day", and was surrounded during the 'Battle of the Bulge". He was in the 21st Weather Squadron. His service number was D857141. They were married in King Memorial Chapel on the campus of Cornell College in Mount Vernon, Iowa, where they both graduated prior to the war. His rank at discharge was Captain. He then went to work for the US Weather Bureau.

      They first moved to Kansas City, MO, Des Moines, IA, Washington, DC, Omaha, NE and finally to Columbia, MO. After he retired from the weather bureau he started a private weather consulting firm predicting worldwide agricultural crop yields using computers and satellite weather data. These were very valuable to our country (and the CIA) during the Cold War, as he could tell from the sattellite data how bad the crops were in Russia.
