Resources: Founding the Interstate Highway System

The Eno Center for Transportation has posted documents related to the Cabinet Meeting on 30 September 1955 held after President Eisenhower’s heart attack. The resources include:

  • A one-page memo dated September 26 from Cabinet Secretary Max Rabb to White House Chief of Staff Sherman Adams suggesting that a Cabinet meeting be held.
  • A two-page agenda prepared by Rabb in advance of the meeting.
  • Seven pages of detailed minutes of what was said during the meeting.
  • A three-page “record of action” memo detailing the actions agreed to during the meeting.
  • A two-page summary of the meeting dated October 6  prepared for President Eisenhower himself.
