Notes
It was originally to be made up of transcriptions of the NASA Distinguished Service Award presentation and retrospective, but Ginny Heinlein pointed out that would make a very short book, and she offered to pull some of RAH’s unreprinted manuscripts out of the Archives; the poetry and speech transcriptions were then incorporated.
