The first Asphalt Handbook

Wallace Craig, an Asphalt Association District Engineer in the Chicago office, prepared a handbook for his personal use on the proper use of asphalt which later was used as a model for the first Asphalt Handbook.

Many important industry groups were formed during this time due to the expansive need for road improvements including:

  • the Highway Research Board
  • the American Road and Transportation Builders Association
  • the American Association of State Highway Officials
