Scope and Content Note

Arrangement

Organization: Arranged alphabetically by subject and chronologically thereunder.
Summary: The series reflect Collier's work in transportation planning, funding and safety. The following description is only a sampling. Please refer to the finding aid for a complete listing of subject headings.
  • The BAY AREA TRANSPORTATION STUDY COMMISSION file (1961-1969) deals with a plan for a regional authority with power to coordinate and regulate roads, bridges, airports and transit systems.
  • The COUNCIL OF STATE GOVERNMENTS file (1954-1968) contains interstate compacts (driver's license, highway safety and vehicle equipment safety), records of the Western Interstate Committee on Highway Policy Problems and Executive Committee minutes.
  • The COUNTY ROADS AND CITY STREETS file (1946-1963) includes deficiency reports, resolutions and suggested legislation for correcting deficiencies in funding. Separate files and additional information is available for Del Norte (1939-1978), Humboldt (1949-1968), Siskiyou (1939-1976) and Sonoma (1949-1973) counties under the county name.
  • The GOVERNOR'S AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT STUDY COMMISSIONS file (1968-1970) contains final report of the commission's study on automobile accident prevention, consequences and reparations. Includes commission hearing presentations and series of background reports on traffic safety by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
  • The GOVERNOR'S TASK FORCE ON TRANSPORTATION (1967-1970) was created to define the state's role in transportation planning and recommend an organizational structure which could correlate and plan for the state's future transportation needs. Among the recommendations of the task force was the creation of the California Transportation Board. (see Secretary of Business and Transportation Agency records group for State Transportation Board records.)
  • The LOS ANGELES METROPOLITAN AREA file (1951-1964) addresses public transit problems. Includes regional transportation study conducted in 1960.
  • The OREGON MOUNTAIN TUNNEL file (1949-1962) contains background information on the need for such a tunnel and its placement. Coverage on the groundbreaking ceremonies and the tunnel dedication are found with the Subject Files under the heading of Highways--Randolph Collier Tunnel Dedication.
  • The RAPID TRANSIT file (1953-1970) focuses on the proposed organizational and financial aspects of the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) as well as studies and reports of the Los Angeles mass rapid transit problem.
