    "This publication compiles remarks, papers, and photographs associated with several events held over the past twenty years honoring Ferdinand Rudolph Hassler, first Superintendent of the Survey of the Coast and first Superintendent of Weights and Measures. These related events begin with the 180th anniversary of the establishment of the 'Survey of the Coast,' celebrated in 1987, and continue with the renovation the Hassler memorial monument on the outskirts of Philadelphia. Out of that monument renovation, completed in 1993, came two additional memorials, one at NOAA headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland, in 1995, and another at NIST in Gaithersburg, Maryland, in 2004. This publication also presents materials previously unknown to earlier Hassler historians such as the recently uncovered Hassler correspondence to Admiral Adam J. von Krusenstern obtained from the Russian State Archive of the Navy in St. Petersburg. A comprehensive Hassler bibliography is also included"--Abstract.
