HISTORICAL SKETCH

The Seminar on Space Exploration was held at Augustana College from February 10 -12, 1972. The seminar included talks by Augustana faculty and guest speakers about climate change and lunar exploration. Speakers included Dr. James VanAllen, Dr. Roald Fryxell, Dr. Thor Karlstrom, and Dr. Edward J. Olsen. Neil Armstrong delivered the convocation address on Friday, February 11, and attended two panel discussions. In conjunction with the seminar, a moon rock on loan from NASA was put on display in the John Deere Planetarium.

 

SCOPE AND CONTENT

The collection consists of a photo album, three copies of a commemorative program, a loose photograph of Neil Armstrong and audio recordings of the seminars. The photo album includes photos of the presenters during the seminar, as well as the moon rock exhibit. The commemorative program includes transcripts of the talks given and pictures of the seminar proceedings and the presenters. The audio recordings include reformatted CD versions of each seminar as well as the original reel-to-reel versions.

 

SYSTEM OF ARRANGEMENT

There is no clear system of arrangement in the photo album, which has been maintained in its original order. Two negatives were removed from the photo album and placed in a separate folder.  Audio recordings are arranged in chronological order based on the order in which each of the space exploration seminars were conducted in 1972.
