Richard A. Anthes (born March 9, 1944) was a long time president of the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (from 1988 to 2012). The Anthes Building in Boulder, Colorado, is the first UCAR-owned building to be named for an eminent scientist – and a living one at that.”[2] His area of study at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, focused on hurricanes and tropical cyclones. Dr. Anthes taught as a professor for ten years at Pennsylvania State University before accepting a position at the National Center for Atmospheric Research as director of the Atmospheric and Prediction Division in 1981, a position he kept until 1986 when he became director of NCAR. In 1988, he started working as president of UCAR, and retired from that position in 2012.[3] During his presidency at UCAR, he participated or chaired over forty different national committees for agencies such as NASA, NSF, and NOAA. He also established a program aimed at increasing participation (especially of minority professionals) in the atmospheric sciences called SOARS (Significant Opportunities in Atmospheric Research and Science).
