Scope and Contents

From the Series: This series contains a collection of oversized posters, prints, and maps that Neil Armstrong maintained as part of his interest in space flight, aeronautic and astronautic technology, and geology. Most of these materials were bundled together under the label [Posters] by Armstrong himself. Other items in this series were kept by Armstrong as miscellany, variously stored by him in his office and other work spaces. The bulk of items found here are related to NASA and space flight, the remainder reflect Armstrong's interests in travel and geology.
