    Could also be that Lewis & Clark were Americans. Mason & Dixon were a couple
    of hired guns from England, brought in because there was no domestic talent
    capable of running that survey.
    
    That would make M&D doubly unpopular in the history clases. Unpopular
    because it shows there were no skilled surveyors in the US at that point,
    and unpopular again because they were hired from the "opressor", i.e.
    England, so they could not have been celebrated during the early years of
    the new nation.
