AAA & National Conservation Commission

This article, published January 30, 1909 in the Indianapolis Star, concerns plans for the American Automobile Association (AAA) and National Conservation Commission to collaborate. The article discusses the largely disjointed way roads were being developed individually by states and collaboration between these two organizations could lead to a more attractive and efficient highway system. The commission had been created by President Theodore Roosevelt the previous year as one of several Progressive policies he had instituted especially to conserve natural resources. Note that Dowell Evans of Philadelphia was the AAA executive appointed to work with the Commission.
In an article next to this one auto manufacturing pioneer Elwood Haynes is quoted on his work with the Appersons to construct his first Haynes auto mobile.
