On offer is fascinating archive of documents, letters, data etc. originally held by Apollo rocket scientist Jesco Von Puttkamer who was personally recruited by Wernher Von Braun to work on the Saturn and Apollo rocket programs. Included in the group housed in a 3 and almost a half inch thick binder is a notebook crammed with internal NASA reports on the Saturn Flight Evaluation Group, including many formerly "Classified" documents which were later declassified. There are many NASA Saturn/Apollo executive memorandums, fold out charts, copies of letters and some hand-written notes by Puttkamer on the subject of rocket booster recovery (much on this subject and launch vehicle recovery). There are proposals for experiments to be undertaken on Saturn rockets, personal papers of Puttkamer regarding training, etc., and much, much more. Many of the documents are dated or date-stamped 1964 and 1965 making for a superb insider's peek into the internal workings of NASA and the Apollo program.
