Henry Ginder,
of New Orleans, who had served in the Coast Survey from 1846 to 1851, died in that city June 23, 1922, aged 90 years. When he resigned from the survey he was an aid in the party of F. H. Gerdes.

He requested that the Coast and Geodetic Survey Office be informed in the event of his death, as he had always held the service in affectionate regard.

Mr. Ginder was probably the oldest survivor of those who aided in the work at that early period. He had been in business in New Orleans for many years. [Henry Ginder was the President of A.B. Griswold and Company in 1921, a jewelry and silversmith concern. During the Civil War, he was initially involved in manufacturing war supplies for the Confederate Army and then was in the Army of Tennessee.]
