Introduction

The San Diego Air and Space Museum is home to over 200,000 images that document the history of the Atlas missile which was developed and manufactured in San Diego.  The Atlas was America's first Intercontinental Ballistic Missile and also one of the most significant space launch vehicles in our history. In March of 2015 the San Diego Air and Space Museum received a two-year Federal grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) to process and catalog 165,000 of the collection's images, and digitize and place 50,000 of them online. This exhibit highlights some of the archivists' favorite images during the project.
