United States Senate Committee on Transportation Routes to the Seaboard

The Committee on Transportation Routes to the Seaboard, was a standing committee of the United States Senate from 1879-1921 [ [http://www.senate.gov/artandhistory/history/resources/pdf/CommitteeChairs.pdf Chairmen of the Senate Standing Committees, 1789-present] . Senate Historical Office. November 2006] . It was first established as a select committee December 16, 1872, until it became a standing committee on March 19, 1879.

According to historian George H. Haynes, it was said in 1917 that this committee had the dubious distinction of never having met in its (then) 38 years. There is no evidence to show that the Committee on Transportation Routes to the Seaboard ever convened before its termination in 1921, and, not surprisingly, few papers were ever referred to it. According to the National Archives, official records of the committee consist of little more than a few printed reports, petitions, and memorials.
