"Early America’s Preeminent Surveyor": 2013 Maps and America Lecture at UWM

April 11, 2013

Chas Langelan, Washington DC Land Surveyor (retired), and Officer of the Surveyors Historical Society, will present “Andrew Ellicott: Early America’s Preeminent Surveyor,” on Thursday, April 18, 2013 in the American Geographical Society Library.

Ellicott (1754-1820), during a long and distinguished career, helped complete the Mason-Dixon Line, and laid out the Georgia-North Carolina border, the western bounds of Pennsylvania, the American boundary with Spanish Florida, the New York-Pennsylvania line, the Erie triangle, and the Canadian border of New York.

He is perhaps best remembered for his survey of Washington, D.C. and his work finishing Pierre L’Enfant’s plan of the city.

The Holzheimer "Maps and America" Lecture series, initiated in 1990, is supported by Arthur and Janet Holzheimer and co-sponsored by the Friends of the Golda Meir Library. In conjunction with the talk, an exhibit of maps relating to the lecture topic will be on display.

The lecture, free and open to the public, will be presented at 6 p.m. with a reception preceding the talk at 5 p.m. The AGS Library is located on the third floor, east wing of the UWM Golda Meir Library building, 2311 E. Hartford Ave.
