In , Luke Howard, a young British pharmacist and amateur scientist, presented the cloud classification system he had developed to a lecture audience in London. His system was popular from the start and proved to be more viable than any rival schemes, but it would still take almost a century, until , for his terms to become recognised as the international standard in the field. These days, the terms Howard introduced are omnipresent while their inventor has fallen into obscurity.

Luke Howard was a Quaker druggist "chemist," in England who survived years of being an apprentice by staring at the skies. He was barred by the universities for being a Christian. Like many self-educated bright young Englishmen in the nineteenth century, he joined a discussion society that met and read papers. On a December evening in he read by the light of an Argand lamp "On the Modifications of Clouds. Printed in a journal, and as a book, this paper swept across Europe and the Atlantic.
