    Finding Aid for the Dale E. Wolfe Collection (HSF-77)
    (UHCL Archives staff, 2023)
    The Dale E. Wolfe Collection is composed of reports, correspondence, memorandums, training manuals, handbooks, personnel records, presentation slides printouts, photographs, booklets, newsletters, cartoons, and miscellaneous materials, created, used, or collected by Dale E. Wolfe while he worked with NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC) as a NASA contractor working for Boeing’s Houston operations. Wolfe worked as an electrical engineer with Boeing and NASA JSC on the Apollo Program missions, Skylab Program, Apollo-Soyuz Test Project (ASTP), and various other program from 1967 through the 1980s. The bulk of the material in this collection are various manuals and handbooks relating to the Apollo 16 and 17 missions, as well as the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project with the Soviet Union. The largest and most significant set of materials in the collection is Wolfe’s binder of reports and correspondence spanning the entire Apollo program between 1967 and 1975, focusing primarily on the Apollo 16 and 17 missions. The set contains original notes, manuals, reports, data, and company correspondence. The most interesting items in the collection are two of Wolfe’s original green fabric personal meeting notebooks, in which he took notes and wrote ideas own during meetings with Boeing Houston and NASA JSC between January 1973 and February 1975 at the height of the Skylab Program and Apollo-Soyuz Test Project. The collection is an important representation of the work of a Boeing contract employee with NASA Johnson Space Center at the height of the United States’ space program.
