Ernst A. Maedel (1831 - 18xx) was a German American engraver. Born in Saxon, Weimar, Germany, Maedel worked for the U.S. Coast Survey and then the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey as an engraver from 1857 until he resigned on October 1, 1885, 'in preference to becoming a naturalized citizen of the United States'. Per a Report of the Superintendent of the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, Maedel 'was not excelled in his speciality of letter engraving by any of his associates, and it may be truly said that he has left a stamp of his genius on the charts of the Survey which those who follow may well endeavor to emulate.'
