I would like to thank the individuals who assisted me in the research and preparation of this monograph. Will H. Carroll, Prof Harry H. Almond Jr., and Brig Gen Martin Menter, USAF, Retired, all provided invaluable interviews and documents. Robbie Profitt of the Federal Aviation Administration assisted me in locating crucial Air Coordinating Committee papers. Mrs. Albert M. Kuhfeld provided me access to her husband’s files. Eilene Galloway allowed me to pick her brain periodically. R. Cargill Hall provided me early access to his insightful works analyzing the origins of US space policy, which explain in detail the Eisenhower administration’s thinking and efforts to assure acceptance of its “freedom of space” policy. The officials of the Air Force Historical Research Agency, Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama, graciously allowed me the flexibility of completing this long-term project as a part of my agency duties. The librarians at the National Academy of Sciences and the archivists at the National Records Center and the National Archives and Records Administration were always helpful and pleasant. Most importantly, thanks are due to Jacob Neufeld, who guided the direction of my research and my writing and whose welcomed red pen was always ready and on the money, and to Thomas C. Lobenstein and Peggy Smith, my Air University Press editors, for their willingness to put up with my last-minute additions and changes. Thanks also to Karen Fleming-Michael for reading, copyediting, and logistic support. Finally, thanks to James Howard and Richard Wolf who prevented the succeeding generations of computer software programs from disorganizing the iterations of this monograph and who thereby kept me sane.
