A note from the March 1949 issue: (TRAVEL USA) issued monthly by the U.S. Travel Division, National Park Service as a medium for the exchange of ideas beneficial to the development of travel. TRAVEL USA describes services offered to the industry and the traveling public by the United States Travel Division and other organizations in the travel field.
Purpose and Program (from TRAVEL USA first issue)
For many years the United States of America was one of the few large countries in the world that did not maintain an official Government travel office. This was an anomaly in view of the fact that fifty or more foreign nations were officially engaged in promoting travel to their own countries and the principal target of their well organized campaigns was, and still is the American tourist.
In 1940, Congress took the necessary steps to create within the Department of the Interior an official organization to encourage, promote and develop travel to and within the United States. The activities of this new office, which were carried successfully for a period, were suspended from 1942 to 1947 as a result of stringent restrictions on foreign and domestic travel imposed by World War II.
The United States Travel Division is again in operation. Its staff is engaged in initiating a new program that has been devised with the aid if representatives of all important phases of the travel industry. The attraction of foreign visitors to this country will have an important place in this program. Initially, these efforts will be concentrated within the Western Hemisphere, but will be extended to other parts of the world as changing economic conditions make such action desirable. Within the U.S.A. all possible cooperation and assistance will be given to the travel industry and the traveling public in maintaining a high level of domestic travel.
The Travel Division will not compete in any way with private travel organizations, but will seek to bring about the full utilization of existing facilities and will encourage the establishment of new facilities and if they are required.
TRAVEL USA will be issued free to travel organizations in this country and throughout the world. It will serve as a medium for the exchange of ideas beneficial to the development of travel and will describe services offered to industry by the Travel Division and other Government agencies. It will also foster the use of United States registered ships and planes overseas.
