Black and white contact prints made by the Smithsonian Institution of Printing and Photographic Services (OPPS) in 1986 for National Air and Space Museum (NASM) from original Rudy Arnold black and white negatives. Smithsonian Institution (SI) negative numbers were assigned to the images by NASM, but negatives were never transferred to OPPS (some duplicate numbering errors were made); numbers in this 86-30000 to 86-30510 series have never been valid Smithsonian negative numbers. Most prints are annotated with 1986 numbers. Contact prints are interfiled with photocopies of negative envelopes labelled with both the 1986 numbers and the original Rudy Arnold numbers, if known.
35mm color slides were copied by OPPS for NASM from original Rudy Arnold color transparencies, and are labelled with Rudy Arnold "C" image numbers.
