WEEK OF JUNE 27 FOR NATIONAL TOUR
The New York Times
April 12, 1914
Three A's Announces Plans for Chicago-Boston Run and White Mountain Visit.
Frank X. Mudd, Chairman of the American Automobile Association Touring Board, has declared the week beginning Saturday, June 27, and concluding Saturday, July 4, as the official touring week for 1914. It will be marked by a night and day run from Chicago to Boston and concluded by the midsummer semi-annual meeting of the association, to be held at Bretton Woods, in the White Mountains. A year hence the scene will shift to the Pacific Coast, with San Francisco as the terminus. Chairman Richard Kennerdell and his Contest Board are at work on the stock-car rules that will govern the Chicago-Boston event, the principal prize in which will be the famous Glidden trophy.
For the gathering in the White Mountains L. R. Speare of Boston has the arrangements in hand, and those who make the trip by way of the Hub City will start from there on the morning of July 3, the Chicago-Boston contest run finishing on the preceding day. This unique competition will be conducted under the joint supervision of the American Automobile Association Touring and Contest Boards, with the Chicago Automobile Club in direct charge of the details of the run.
In the latter part of June or early in July the White Mountains country is at its best, and many American Automobile Association clubs and members in various parts of the country have signifed their intention of spending their touring week in New England territory, with an itinerary to include the rendezvous at Bretton Woods. In connection with the various tours to the White Mountains, the beautiful A. A. A. national touring trophy and the Anderson Cup donated by the South Carolina city of that name will be offered in competition under rules that have yet to be formulated by Chairman Mudd.
