Cleveland Abbe Sr. was born in New York City. He was an American astronomer and meteorologist. He received his Bachelor of Science degree from Harvard in 1864, which also marked the end of his working at the US Coast Survey. He was the first, regular, official weather forecaster of the U.S. government and was an avid supporter of research in atmospheric physics. A national weather service was authorized in 1870 and Abbe devoted the rest of his career to that service.
