Descriptive Entry
Descriptive Entry
These records consist of the official files of Michael Collins as director of the National Air and Space Museum (NASM), 1971-1978. To a large extent, the files concern the planning and funding of the new NASM building, its construction, the preparation of exhibits, and the opening of the Museum on July 1, 1976. On day-to-day administrative matters, documentation is uneven and in some areas, lacking. Correspondents include Smithsonian and NASM staff, Congressmen and other government officials, members of the aerospace and other industries, museum directors, astronauts, and the public.
