Finding Aid for the Robert V. Grilli Papers (HSF-63)
The Robert V. Grilli Papers is composed of reports, memos, notes, technical manuals and handbooks, checklists, guides, schedules, technical requirements records, technical documents, directories, training manuals, meeting logs, telephone directories, plans, charts, reel-to-reel audiotapes, and other materials, documenting the career of Robert V. Grilli as a contractor with Philco-Ford, Ford Aerospace and Communications Corporation, Rockwell Space Operations Company, and United Space Alliance at Johnson Space Center in coastal Houston, Texas. Grilli worked as a contractor at Johnson Space Center from 1962 to 2011. Most of this collection covers his work on the Space Shuttle Program from 1978 to 1997. Most of the records and manuals document Grilli’s work as a Shuttle program engineer in program requirements, payloads system, telemetry, command data, and communications between 1980 and 1995. There are also Grilli’s personal original reel-to-reel audiotapes of portions of the Apollo 15 mission, Skylab mission, and Skylab 4 mission.
