In 1955, the team which has become the Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) began to organize a research program within its various laboratories and offices. The purpose of the program was two-fold: first, to support existing development projects by research studies and second, to prepare future development projects by advancing the state of the art of rockets and space flight. Funding for this program came from the Army, Air Force, and Advanced Research Projects Agency. The effort during the first year was modest and involved relatively few tasks. The communication of results was, therefore, comparatively easy.; Pages of handwritten notes on yellow legal paper. There is also a 3 x 5 inch card with this information.
