   schema:description ""Ferdinand V. Hayden helped fill this gap beginning with his 1867 survey of Nebraska. The story of this and later Hayden expeditions illustrates the evolving relationship of government patronage and science in Gilded Age America. By sheer force of personality and persistence, Hayden succeeded in selling the federal government something it was not at all sure it wanted: science. In the process he created a secure niche for several branches of science within the federal bureaucracy."@en ;
   schema:description "Science could contribute to answering these questions, but at the time there were no bureaus or agencies that could apply scientific expertise to these challenges.""@en ;
   schema:description "He was the one person most responsible for the creation of the United States Geological Survey as a civilian bureau. Most importantly, Hayden's surveys led to the production of detailed topographic maps and inspired - for good or ill - the intensive development of the West's resources."--Jacket."@en ;
