National Geographic : 1968 Jan
Big new wall map of the United States coming next month EW DAMS, LAKES, and highways are changing the face of Ameri ca, and the Society will present an up-to-date portrait as a supplement to the February GEOGRAPHIC. Poring over a proof of the new United States wall map, Miss Evelyn Fox, in charge of staff travel arrange ments, notes airport symbols and the double red lines of new expressways. Graceful as sculpture (right), New York's Interstate 87 winds through the Adirondacks toward Canada. February's GEOGRAPHIC will tell the full story of ourgrowing Interstate Highway System, biggest public works project in history. The same issue will take you from Czechoslo vakia to Ecuador, and into the peril ous realm of sharks, wolves of the sea.
