Apollo 7

Oct 11, 1968 was the launch of the Apollo 7, which landed Oct. 22, 1968. A year later the US landed on the moon (Apollo 11) July 16-24, 1969. I thought it would be fun to see what we have on the Apollo flights in the Clarke.

In the Senator Robert P. Griffin Papers there are photographs of his staff watching the Apollo splashdown on TV on July 24, 1969. There are also photos of Griffin with various astronauts including at the launch of Apollo 11 in 1969 and with Apollo 15 astronauts in 1971.  http://quod.lib.umich.edu/c/clarke/ehll--griffin?type=simple&rgn=Entire+Finding+Aid&q1=Apollo&Submit=Search

In the Congressman Elford A. Cederberg Papers there is a film of the Flight of Apollo 11 and Photographs. http://quod.lib.umich.edu/c/clarke/ehll--cederberg?type=simple&rgn=Entire+Finding+Aid&q1=Apollo&Submit=Search

We have a 1984 speech of George W. Romney, past Governor of Michigan, supporting Jack Lousma, who was running for political office. Lousma was one of the astronaut support crews for the Apollo missions 9, 10, 13 in 1966.

The Clarke also has books on the more general topic of space flight, most of which are for children.
