From: Masinaigan@aol.com [Joe Trainor] Date: Thu, 20 Nov 1997 12:52:06 -0500 (EST) Fwd Date: Thu, 20 Nov 1997 21:36:00 -0500 Subject: Significant Records of Technical Achievements From USA Today November 20, 1997 RECORDS DESTROYED The (USA's) National Archives and the Navy blame each other for the inadvertent destruction of records chronicling what the Archives calls "some of the most significant technical achievements in the 20th Century." The 4,200 scientific notebooks and 600 boxes of correspondence and technical memos of the Naval Research Laboratory were "pulped beyond recognition," the Archives said. Some records were of rocket development, the early space program and development of radar. File this one under "Crime Against History," gang!
