Milo McLeod and Dan Hall
Milo McLeod and Robert Wolf each describe some of the history of federal government support of road construction. Wolf highlights the connection between logging national forests and road construction. He also explains the background of the construction of the Lolo Pass Road. Wolf discusses the pressures from the Idaho side for this road as a completion of the Lewis and Clark Highway which resulted in 1957 hearings. He talks about the roles played by Senators Albert Gore, Frank Church, and Henry Dworshak during the hearings.
