Biographical or historical data
The Board on the Chesapeake and Its Tributaries was created by an act passed by the General Assembly on 4 March 1884. The board was composed of the governor, auditor of public accounts, and treasurer. On 29 February 1892 the General Assembly authorized the board to cooperate with the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey in surveying the natural oyster beds, rocks, and shoals of Virginia. James B. Baylor was in charge of the survey. The board ceased to exist after the General Assembly transferred its functions to the newly created Board of Fisheries by an act passed 7 February 1898.
