Scope and Contents:
This collection consists of material chronicling the NACA/NASA career of Dennis Hasson, notably his work on Project Mercury, his work with a lenticular manned reentry vehicle for planned lunar missions; and his work with deep-space probes. The following type of material is included: Langley NASA newsletters; memos and correspondence; phone lists and organizational charts; newspaper articles; photographs; one 16 mm film of wind tunnel testing; reports; and drawings.
Biographical / Historical:
Dennis Hasson received his Mechanical Engineering BES from The John Hopkins University, his Aerospace Engineering MS from Virginia Polytechnic Institute, and his Engineering Material Ph.D. from the University of Maryland. Hasson worked at NACA-NASA at Langley Research Center, as well as the Goddard Space Flight Center. Hasson's work started with experimental aerodynamic studies on advanced aircraft, such as the X-15 and Mach 3 transport. In March 1959, Hasson was assigned to the Aerodynamics Group at Langley Field. That group was responsible for the aerodynamic performance of the manned space vehicle in the earth's atmosphere. Hasson was responsible for the wind-tunnel program for the Mercury project and he and two coworkers received a patent for a manned reentry vehicle for planned lunar missions. In 1961, he became involved in advanced control thruster and power systems for deep-space probes, using advanced materials including fabricators and metallic, polymeric and ceramic materials. He is a Fellow of both ASM international and ASME Internal. He received the Meritorious Civilian Service Medal, and was Pi Tau Sigma USNA Chapter Teacher of the Year. He is currently a Professor at the US Naval Academy in the Mechanical Engineering Department.

This collection consists of the following material documenting the work of Grumman on the Apollo Lunar Module propulsion systems: sixteen reports prepared by Raymond Arons, propulsion engineer for Grumman; two reports prepared by the Grumman Propulsion Analytic Group; one report prepared by NASA; and twenty-five photographs taken by NASA, TRW and Grumman of the Apollo White Sands Test Facility (WSTF).
Biographical / Historical:
Raymond Arons (1941- ) received a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Fairleigh Dickinson University in 1962. Arons started his career as a Lunar Module Propulsion Engineer on the Apollo Project for Grumman Aerospace. As Chief Data Analyst at the White Sands, New Mexico Apollo Test Facility, Arons tested the Lunar Module engines and analyzed large data sets to validate NASA's ability to land astronauts on the moon and return them safely to earth. In 1969, Arons turned to the field of medicine and received his Masters (1976) and Doctorate (1983) from the School of Public Health, Columbia University. Arons now teaches at the Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University.

Scope and Contents:
Hereward Lester Cooke (1916-1975), a curator at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, was extremely interested in the moon landing as well as in stamp collecting. He acquired over five hundred stamps relating to the 1969 lunar landing from countries including: Afghanistan, Algeria, Belgium, Bhutan, Brazil, Burundi, Cameroon, Chad, China, Congo, Czechoslovakia, Dahomey, Dubai, Fujeira, Gabon, Ghana, Grenada, Guatemala, Guinea, Haiti, Honduras, India, Iran, Italy, Korea, Liberia, Magyar, Malagasy, Maldives, Mali, Mexico, Monaco, Mongolia, Nicaragua, Niger, Panama, Paraguay, Poland, Ras Al Khaima, Rwanda, El Salvador, Samoa, Seychelles, Sharjah and Dependencies, Togolaise, Trinidad and Tobago, Umm Al Qiwain, The United States, Upper Volta, Uruguay and Venezuela. He donated his collection to the National Air and Space Museum in the early 1970s.
Biographical / Historical:
The first steps by a human on another planetary body were taken by Neil Armstrong of the Apollo 11 mission on July 20, 1969. In order to commemorate this monumental event, many countries created stamps relating to the moon landing. While most of the stamps feature Neil Armstrong descending onto the surface of the moon and other various space scenes, other stamps feature the crew members dressed in civilian clothes along with their families. Along with documenting history, the stamps generated revenue for the issuing countries.

Summary:
This donation consists of one Man on the Moon "Decade in a Day" seven-inch 45 rpm vinyl record, with album cover.
Scope and Contents:
This donation consists of one Man on the Moon "Decade in a Day" seven-inch 45 rpm vinyl record, with album cover. This recording captures the historical moment during the Senators-Yankees Game in Yankee Stadium on July 20, 1969.
Arrangement:
No arrangement, just one item.
Biographical / Historical:
On the evening of July 20, 1969, not everyone was focused on the Apollo 11 moon landing all the time. Many baseball fans were tuned in to radio broadcasts from Yankee stadium that night as the Yankees played the Washington Senators. At the moment of landing, broadcasters interrupted the game and switched over to the live feeds, unscripted and unedited, that they were receiving from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). When Eagle landed, and the stations switched back over to the game, it was announced in the stadium that Apollo 11 had landed on the Moon. The roar of the crowd, which then later breaks out into song in celebration, perfectly captures the mood of a nation, filled with pride in the accomplishment. In a stroke of marketing genius, WWDC Radio, and the Washington Senators, produced a commemorative 45 rpm record album that they gave away as a marketing gift that would forever associate their team and brand with the moment.
