  THE 1957 DALLAS TORNADO
The 1957 Dallas Tornado might easily be dismissed as just one out of scores of common Texas twisters, each in its time having done some damage and, perhaps, killed a few unfortunate people.

On April 10, 1957, many newspapers around the nation carried this AP piece quoting Weather Bureau meteorologist Robert G. Beebe, who was to go on to prepare the Bureau's official report on the tornado.
