Federal Air Pollution Efforts, the Early Years 890814

Early scattered Federal Air Pollution studies were coordinated by Congress in 1955 through the Public Health Service of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare. Motor vehicle pollution research was initiated shortly thereafter at the Robert A. Taft Sanitary Engineering Center in Cincinnati, and included investigations of photochemical smog, emission measurement techniques, and means of vehicle emission control. Automobile Emissions were first regulated nation-wide on 1968 models and the Federal activities were shifted to Willow Run and later Ann Arbor, Michigan. The paper deals with the Federal efforts leading to the period of early emissions regulation.
