    Bio / His Notes: 
    In July 1960 NASA prepared to implement "Project Apollo" which would introduce a manned circumlunar mission project to their planning. The project took on a new form, however, when President Kennedy in May 1961 proposed the goal of a manned lunar landing. It was a program of three-man flights, leading to the landing of men on the moon.
    This collection consists of the following reports relating to the early planning and development of the Apollo Missions: "The Long Range Plan;" "National Launch Vehicle Data Summary;" "Large Launch Vehicle Planning Group;" "A Summary of Various Vehicle Systems for the Manned Lunar Landing Mission;" "A Feasible Approach for An Early Manned Lunar Landing, Parts 1 and 2;" "Manned Lunar-Landing through use of Lunar-Orbit Rendezvous, Vol. 1 and 2;" "Earth Orbital Rendezvous for an early Manned Lunar Landing;" and "A Survey of Various Vehicle Systems for the Manned Lunar Landing Mission." The collection also contains some correspondence between Fleming and White House offices and the Department of Defense. During March 2000, a few additional reports and lecture notes by Fleming were added to this collection.
