Route 66 Alliance Reorganizes
The Route 66 Alliance, a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and enhancement of the historic highway, has reorganized in order to better serve the people and places of the Mother Road.
Based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the Alliance was initially created in 2009 by author Michael Wallis, preservation advocate Rick Freeland, and preservationist James Conkle.
As part of the reorganization, Conkle is no longer affiliated in any way with the Alliance but continues his own activities from his home in California. Wallis, a Tulsa resident, and Freeland, who lives in the Washington, DC area, will continue to guide, manage, and develop the Alliance.
Further details regarding the Alliance are forthcoming.
