Profiles in Time
C&GS (Coast and Geodetic Survey) Biographies

Asa C. Baldwin: The old-timers in the Survey will be deeply sorry to learn of the death of Asa C. Baldwin from a heart attack September 18 at his home in Seattle, Washington. Mr. Baldwin, who was a prominent Seattle engineer, was born in Austinburg, Ohio, and attained his education at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland and George Washington Law School. He entered the service of the International Boundary Commission in 1907, where he remained until 1914 with the exception of one year when he was with the Coast and Geodetic Survey. For the benefit of those who might not know, O. H. Tittman, who was then Superintendent of the Coast Survey, was also Commissioner of the International Boundary Commission, so it was natural for the two Bureaus to be very close. Mr. Baldwin worked on the boundary line between Alaska and Canada from Mt. St. Elias north to the Arctic Ocean during his time in the Commission. He also served overseas in World War I as a Captain of the 29th Engineers. He achieved quite a reputation as an authority on Alaska, making two trans-continental tours to lecture on the territory. Since 1938 he has been President of the Yellow Band Gold Mines, Inc. He was a member of the Washington, D.C. and Alaska Bar Associations., American Society of Civil Engineers, and Beta Theta Pi. He is survived by his widow and two children.
