Scope and Contents

From the Sub-Series: This sub-series contains material that was kept by Neil Armstrong for his own reference. Many of these subject file were stored in cardboard magazine holders and given subject headings by Armstrong. As there was no clear order to the way in which these subject files were housed, we have placed them in alphabetical order according to subject heading.

A wide variety of miscellaneous material on space exploration and technology is found at the end of the subject files. Also presented here are books and publications belonging to Armstrong's personal library. Almost all of these texts are related to space exploration and aeronautics.
