This accession consists of records created and maintained by James C. Cornell, Jr., a public information specialist and publications manager for the Smithsonian Astrophysical
Observatory (SAO) for nearly 40 years. SAO jointly administers the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) with the Harvard College Observatory. Materials primarily
consist of photographs used in the production of newsletters (such as "SAO News" and CfA's "Centerline") and other publications as well as those documenting the construction
of Satellite Tracking Program stations around the world. In addition, materials include handbooks, news clippings, station notes, and publications chronicling the history
of both SAO and the Harvard College Observatory.
