I am honored to have been a friend of the remarkable Dr. Ted Fujita of the University of Chicago. The University has published this tribute. “Tornado families,” “downbursts,” “microbursts,” “suction vortices,” and the Fujita-Scale — all were added to the American lexicon by this remarkable man. Ted had an amazing analytical mind and he was willing to go where the science took him.
