Summary

Exerpt from Torch: "When Catherine Scott joined NASM as the librarian in 1972, there was no formally organized library. What did exist was the Historical Research Center, a collection of uncataloged books and journals donated by the Institute of Aeronautical Sciences, much of which was housed in a dark, dusty area of A&I's second floor. Scott's job was to organize the scattered collection, plan the new library, and maintain it as an integral part of NASM. For her effort, Secretary Ripley awarded her the Superior Service Award in 1976.
