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.

Date:
circa 1972-1989
Descriptive Entry:
These records provide documentation of the development of NASM as it built on the huge success of its 1976 opening. The emphasis of the museum's administration turned to revitalization of research efforts, professionalization of the staff, initiation of new projects and new exhibitions, an expanded program of publications, and plans to build both a new restaurant and an extension of the museum at Dulles International Airport.

The records primarily document the tenure of Walter J. Boyne as Acting Director and Director of NASM, 1982-1986, with small amounts of material of Michael Collins, Noel W. Hinners, James C. Tyler, Donald S. Lopez, and Martin Harwit. Also included are some records created by Boyne as Executive Officer, 1978-1979, Assistant Director for Resource Management and Operations, 1980, and Assistant Director, 1981.
Historical Note:
Michael Collins was the Director, National Air and Space Museum (NASM), 1971-1978. Melvin B. Zisfein held the position of Acting Director until 1979 when Noel W. Hinners assumed the directorship, serving until 1982. Walter J. Boyne was named Acting Director in 1982 and Director in 1983. Upon Boyne's resignation in 1986, James C. Tyler became Acting Director. Martin Harwit served as Director, 1987-1995.
