About this title:

Synopsis: Excerpt from Beginnings of the American Rectangular Land Survey System, 1784-1800: A Dissertation Submitted to the Faculty of the Division of the Social Sciences in Candidacy for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy; Department of Geography Research Paper No. 50

In a sense, this study began in London, England, nearly 'ive years ago, when my attention was drawn to the United States >ublic land surveys by H. C. Darby of the Department of Geography, lniversity College London. Interest centered at first in finding >ut uses to which the descriptive content of the public land sur 'ey records had been put, and I undertook an inquiry along this ine which was later completed at the Department of Geography, Indiana University, under the Sponsorship of Norman J. G. Pounds. [eanwhile, the public land survey system as a whole had become areasingly interesting, and preliminary research in Washington and elsewhere had suggested to me opportunities for contributing zo an understanding of the system. It was as a returned student Ln the Department of Geography, University of Chicago, that I 'ixed upon the Scope of the present study, in September, 1955, since which time research and writing have gone forward under the supervision of Wesley C. Calef.
