WHAT THE AMERICA THAT WORKED COULD HANDLE.

This map of major hurricanes during the best years of The American High came from Tom Nelson's weather weblog.



Mr Nelson notes that in those days nobody was blaming hurricanes on carbon dioxide, although there might have been some people blaming atomic bomb tests for unusual weather, or for stopping global warming.

There was less by way of Federal involvement in disaster cleanup, and Adlai Stevenson did not make President Eisenhower's handling of the 1954 and 1955 hurricanes a campaign issue.
