The Roy D. Bridges Jr. papers (1957-2010; 68.90 cubic feet) document the extensive Air Force and NASA career of Roy D. Bridges Jr.
The papers include but are not limited to, artifacts, audio visual material, awards, books, briefs and records, certificates, clippings, clothing, correspondence, diaries, documents, flight logs, flight checklists and data files, along with Bridges’ pilot kneeboard notes, medals, mementos, papers, photographs, scrapbooks, textbooks, research papers, and working papers.
Donated in multiple accessions over several years, each accession arrived with a detailed inventory that, in many cases, included explanatory notes by Bridges. These notes, a kind of commentary by Bridges, have been incorporated into this finding aid.
The papers are divided into nine series, and further information on the scope and content of the collection is located at the series and subseries levels.
