Publisher: The Office of the Coast Survey, founded in 1807 by Secretary of Commerce Albert Gallatin and President Thomas Jefferson, is the oldest organization of its kind in the U.S. Federal Government. The hard working and daring agents of the U.S. Coast Survey were the first explorers to accurately map the North American coast line, opening the ports of the west to trading vessels from Europe, America and Asia. Gallatin chose Swiss immigrant and West Point mathematics professor Ferdinand Hassler to direct the Coast Survey. Under the direction of Hassler, the Coast Survey developed a reputation for uncompromising dedication to the principles of accuracy and excellence. Hassler lead the Coast Survey until his death in 1843, at which time Alexander Dallas Bache, a great-grandson of Benjamin Franklin, took the helm. Under the leadership A. D. Bache, the Coast Survey did most of its most important work. During his Superintendence, Bache was steadfast advocate of American science and navigation and in fact founded the American Academy of Sciences. The techniques developed by the United States Coast Survey were later used by the U.S. Geological and Geodetic Survey in the late 19th and early 20th century.
