1966 (Jan.) Boyd Response to McKee Paper

This is a January 10, 1966 “Eyes-Only” memo from Under Secretary of Commerce for Transportation Alan S. Boyd to White House domestic policy czar Joseph Califano, Jr. The Boyd memo is a direct response to a December 20, 1965 “Confidential” memo from Federal Aviation Administrator Charles “Bozo” McKee objecting to many specifics of the pending plan to create a new Department of Transportation (though it is not clear that Boyd knew that the unsigned December 20 paper was from McKee). Whenever the Boyd memo says “attached paper” it is referring to the December 20 McKee memo.
