Two Typed Letters Signed by Hugh L. Dryden, NACA Director, March 13 and September 30, 1958, to Maxime Faget. Each 1 p. 10½ by 8 inches. Together with 25 official black and white NACA photographs, 10 by 8 inches, of high altitude rocket preparations and launches from Wallops Island, Virginia (some duplicates, a few with printed captions).
