This is the final report given to President Eisenhower on the status of the Interstate Highway Program, dated December 28, 1960. Eisenhower had commissioned the study in July 1959 from his Special Assistant for Public Works Planning, John S. Bragdon (an old Army friend of the President’s), and Bragdon had delivered a 100+ page interim report to the President in April 1960, but after most of its recommendations were rejected, Bragdon left the White House in summer 1960 to take a position on the Civil Aeronautics Board.
The final report was only 12 pages long and was prepared by someone else, after Bragdon was long gone and most of his staff had been dispersed.
