Transportation History: New Digital Collection From University of Michigan Library Documents Building of the Dixie Highway
From the University of Michigan Library:
William Sydnor Gilbreath Sr. wanted to be remembered for his work as the driving force pushing the creation of the Dixie Highway, a paved route connecting the U.S. midwest to the south which was inspired by the east-to-west Lincoln Highway, and was the first highway to span the U.S.
An avid scrapbooker, Gilbreath recorded his life for future generations with photographs, newspaper clippings, and correspondence, and those items that relate to the Dixie Highway are now viewable in the online Gilbreath Dixie Highway Scrapbooks [photographs, clippings, brochures, and correspondence] collection.
