This is US President Woodrow Wilson’s original AAA (American Automobile Association) membership card.
You can see it at his Presidential Library and Museum in Staunton, Virginia, in the same room as his restored Pierce-Arrow limousine.
I wonder if he ever had to call for a tow? Having just used my own membership for that benefit recently, I’m a fan of getting a tow when you need it, that’s for sure.
Yes, AAA is still around, as are their iconic TripTik road trip planners, which you can now do electronically as an iPhone app.
