Pictorial study of road test one - Maryland C0193
Published by George Mason University Libraries
Established in 1920 as the National Advisory Board on Highway Research, the organization provided a mechanism for the exchange of information and research results about highway technology. Renamed the Highway Research Board (HRB) in 1925, the organization accomplished its mission through standing committees, publications, and an annual meeting. Information exchange remained its sole mission until the 1950s, when it began to undertake management of ad hoc research projects. In 1974 the Highway Research Board became the Transportation Research Board.
Collection contains a report titled "Pictorial story of road test one - MD. A project directed by the Highway Research Board, June to December 1950". The report mostly consists of photographs and graphs. There is also an office memorandum to Mr. Royall from C. Ritter (photographer) from June 24, 1953, detailing photographs taken and hours of work.
