Survey Party at the Arch

from NSPS

From Oct. 1: News & Views readers will recall an article some time ago about an activity which was called "Survey Party at the Arch." A more detailed article about that event appeared in the September issue of the Missouri Surveyor, the magazine of the Missouri Society of Professional Surveyors (MSPS). The link to that article is: http://www.missourisurveyor.org/images/1203/document/mspssept14-1_314.pdf

The St. Louis Chapter of MSPS is now in the planning stages of another project that it hopes will involve more than just Missouri Surveyors. Bob Myers, the First State Land Surveyor of Missouri, has located the Final Resting Point of Joseph C. Brown. This is the same Joseph C. Brown who ran the Fifth Principal Meridian. The grave site is currently without a Headstone, and the Chapter is planning to rectify that with the dedication of a monument, with media coverage, and other activities. They are hoping to involve other States such as Arkansas, Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota, and any other state that has reference to Joseph C. Brown in their Land Surveying Records. The Chapter will keep NSPS News & Views informed of the progress for the project, and for outreach to other State Societies. more
