"A harbourmaster (or harbormaster, see spelling differences) is an official responsible for enforcing the regulations of a particular harbour or port, in order to ensure the safety of navigation, the security of the harbour and the correct operation of the port facilities."

Often the Coast Guard assumes this responsibility, but in the early 1900's that was not the case in Sacramento, California.
