The Rudolf Spoor Collection of NASA Photographs and Ephemera

Rudolf Spoor covered NASA for Dutch media throughout the middle part of the century. With his press credentials, he had access to the people and facilities of the space program, but Rudolf’s enthusiasm for exploration was as keen as his instinct to collect. Over forty years, Rudolf amassed more than 1,200 original NASA photographs, in addition to collecting NASA publications, souvenirs and other ephemera. Many of his NASA photographs are signed, as is the collection’s centerpiece: a NASA helmet signed by thirty-two astronauts, technicians, and scientists from the program, including Dr. Wernher von Braun, Terry White, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, Eugene Cernan, James Lovell, and others.

RBMS 2018 Convergence
New Orleans is a hotbed of convergences, ones so powerful that its lineage includes a dish as delightful as gumbo, a storm as destructive as Hurricane Katrina, and mansions as hauntingly beautiful as those on St. Charles Avenue. These creations were formed from the coming together of people, environments, and material culture. This conference reflects the idea of convergences and speaks directly to our field’s preparedness for increasing environmental vulnerabilities on our facilities, our readiness for the inclusion of different people and cultures in what we collect, how we perform outreach and programming, and who we select to staff and lead our repositories, and, finally, our willingness to democratize all of our materials, including but not limited to rare books, archival and digital records, films, maps, and photographs.
