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.

Descriptive Entry:
Dexter Cirillo received her B.A. and M.A. in English from San Diego State University and a Ph.D. in English from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. Her early career focused on teaching and researching the literature and culture of minority groups in the United States. In 1981, Cirillo left the world of academia and pursued her interest in American Indian art as an independent scholar, art dealer, and curator. Among her publications are Southwestern Indian Jewelry (1992), Across Frontiers - Hispanic Crafts of New Mexico (1998), and Southwestern Indian Jewelry - Crafting New Traditions (2008).

Cirillo's association with the National Museum of American Indian (NMAI) started in New York City where she and Wahleah Davis (Cherokee) organized the first cocktail reception for W. Richard West (founding NMAI Director) and John Colonghi (Director, NMAI National Campaign) to meet some potential donors to the museum in 1991. Alice Burnette, Assistant Secretary for Institutional Advancement, had contacted Wahleah, who then contacted Cirillo to help organize the reception since she ran Gallery 10, a high end gallery of Native American art in New York City, in the mid-1980s and knew many of the collectors of Indian art. Additionally at the time, Cirillo was doing research for her book, Southwestern Indian Jewelry, and had done some of her doctoral research at the Museum of the American Indian's library in the Bronx and was one of its supporters urging for a new home to be found for the museum's collection.

From that initial cocktail party, a fundraising committee was launched in New York. When it came time to plan the fundraisers for NMAI, Cirillo was asked to curate the art auctions in 1992, 1994, and 1998, because she knew many of the artists and gallery owners personally. Of note was that a number of the people who attended that first reception in 1991 went on to become members of the NMAI Board and donors to the museum: Valerie and Charles Diker, John L. and Margot Paul Ernst, and James A. and Barbara H. Block.

The Cirillo Papers include correspondence related to each of the auctions, including correspondence with the artists and with the collectors, as well as from W. Richard West and Alice Burnette and other Smithsonian staff members. Also include are the auction catalogs, gala invitations, guest lists, images of auction items, brochures, and clippings.
