The most extensive published guidelines to carrying out studies of tornadoes were written by Johannes Letzmann and Harald Koschmieder, issued in 1937. Forgotten for decades, they are presented here in translation, accompanied by commentary and background material. They provide insight into the development of concepts of tornadogenesis, and a measure of the progress made in tornado research in the recent past.
