Charles Tebbe speaks on Harry T. Gisborne’s accomplishments in the realm of fire control in Montana. He refers to the discovery of artificial rain or snow by dropping dry ice from great heights, as well as the research Gisborne conducted on wind velocity, humidity, and flammability in order to better control wildfires. Tebbe also recounts the story of Gisborne’s death, surveying land to hopefully learn why a recent forest fire had killed 13 firefighters.
