Geodist, mathematician and first superintendant of the United States Coast Survey, Hassler was born in Switzerland in 1770. Political troubles led him to immigrate to America in 1805 with his family. He served as a professor at West Point and Union College. He proposed the first official coast survey in 1807; when the survey was created in 1816, President Madison appointed him superintendent. He also helped in the publication of the narrative of the Lewis and Clark expedition, helping to figure the correct latitude and longitude markings on the large map. His works on mathematics and geometry were well received. Bookseller Inventory # 49499
