From the pages of the Crescent City American, June 1928.
With the arrival here on Tuesday of Lieut. Herman Odessey and Lieut. A. C. Thorson and their party, in charge of typographic and geodetic survey with the United States Navy, work of charting and sounding the coast waters of the Crescent City Harbor will be started at once.
As soon as the preliminary preparations, now being made in Eureka, have been completed, the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey Steamer Discovery, Lieut. F. G. Engle, commanding, will make a complete survey of the Oregon and California coast from a point abreast of Cape Sebastian, in Oregon, and to the southward of Hunter’s Point, in California. The water to the northward of Cape Sebastian, and to the southward of Hunter’s Point, has already been surveyed so upon completion of the project, there will be no gap of unsurveyed area along this portion of the coast.
