Grant W. Johnson of Ticonderoga served as Essex County's lone State Assemblyman from 1953 until his death in 1965. In that time, New York's roads were of particular interest to him, especially the proposed "Adirondack Northway," an extension of the State Thruway's I-87 segment, that would link Albany to the Canadian border. This collection documents Johnson's role, and that of others, from Governor Thomas E. Dewey's proposal for a major highway to connect New York City and Montreal in 1953 to the 1960 aftermath of the referendum results. Researchers interested in the early implementation of the National Interstate and Defense Highways Act of 1956, the Adirondack Park, or state and local politics of the era will find much of value in this collection.
