JAMES F. GREGORY
Signed as Engineer Secretary of the Lighthouse Board
Signature: "James F. Gregory/Major of Engineers U.S. Army/Engineer Sec'y Light House Board", 6¾x2½ album leaf. The Lighthouse Board was created as a federal agency in 1852, run by US naval officers, with the mission of supervising, maintaining and upgrading all coastal lighthouses in the US, functions previously handled by local collectors of customs. The Board, whose accomplishments included gradual electrification of the beacons, was replaced in 1910 by a civilian Lighthouse Service, merged in 1939 with the Coast Guard. The dates of Major Gregory's service on the Board are undetermined, but his other duties as an engineer included surveying the Canadian boundary (1872) and writing reports (1881-1882) on the condition of Yellowstone National Park. Lightly foxed at blank edges. Jagged at left border from removal from bound book. Otherwise, fine condition.
