Schwarz, C. R. (n.d.). North American Datum of 1983. Retrieved from

Excerpt: In 1913 William Bowie persuaded the geodesists of Canada and Mexico to formally connect the surveys of their respective countries to the existing United States Standard Datum. Because of the new international character, and at Bowie's suggestion, the Superintendent of the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey directed that the name be changed to the North American Datum. During Bowie's tenure as chief of the Geodesy Division the decision was reached to carry out a general readjustment of the triangulation networks. Bowie is credited with both designing the method of computation and supervising the work which resulted in the North American Datum of 1927. Soon after the 1927 readjustment, the geodesists of Canada and Mexico also readjusted their triangulation to make it consistent with the new datum, so that the continental character was preserved.
