Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of records documenting the relocation and restoration of three Saturn V rockets the National Air and Space Museum (NASM) acquired from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in the early 1970s, when the Apollo Space Program concluded. One rocket, consisting entirely of stages and spacecraft intended to be launched, is on display at the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. The other rockets on display, one at the John F. Kennedy Space Center in Florida and one at the United States Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama, consist of test stages not meant for flight. Curators represented in these records include Frank H. Winter and Allan A. Needell, and there is material that was created and maintained by Alfred J. Bachmeier, NASM Collections and Facilities Manager. Earlier records dated back to when the Space History Division, prior to 1987, was known as the Department of Space Science and Exploration, and as the Department of Space History from 1987 to 1997.

Materials include correspondence, memoranda, and notes; proposals; contracts and agreements; reports; budget summaries; meeting agendas and minutes; guidelines; articles and press releases; photographs, slides, and negatives; videotape recordings; restoration logs; fundraising information; evaluations; project schedules; architectural drawings, floor plans, and drawings; and supporting documentation. Some materials are in electronic format.
