NACA LETTERS AND PHOTOGRAPHS.
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).
The first letter invites Faget to become a member of the NACA Special Committee on Space Technology's ad hoc working group on re-entry. The second, written on the last day of the NACA's existence, expresses thanks to Faget for his efforts, noting that all NACA functions and responsibilities are being transferred to the newly created NASA; a copy of the official NASA proclamation of transfer is stapled to the letter.
