Wonderful to see the twin archival world pillars of preservation and access honored here. It is very sad the collection remains so small but thank goodness some programming and reports have been saved from senseless loss. I am on a long medical leave but striving toward a doctoral dissertation on the history of radio and TV space exploration and astronomical science coverage from 1923 to the present. It builds on my 2005 master's thesis linked above. I look forward to talking with you. Thanks for your dedication to this endeavor! One correction is needed please on the KTVU-TV 2 SF news report on locals reacting to the Apollo 11 splashdown. The date was Thursday 24 July 1969, one day later than the text states.
