This map promotes the use and expansion of the International Meridian Highway that began in Winnipeg, Canada, and ended in Laredo, Texas. There were plans to extend it through Mexico City, Mexico, but at the time of publication that portion of the highway was not open. The road follows the 6th Principal Meridian through the Great Plains area of the United States and is officially called U.S. Highway 81. The map indicates which sections of the road were paved, gravel, or earth. John C. Nicholson was president of the Meridian Highway Association with offices in Newton, Kansas.
