    Apollo Debriefings: First Generation Photocopies of Chris Kraft's Personal Notes for Apollo Missions 8 through 14, 17, & ASTP, in Their Original File Folders, Directly from His Estate, with Certificate of Authenticity. At the end of most any project or task, there generally comes a debriefing, where a detailed report is made by those involved. NASA's published word-for-word transcripts for all of the Apollo debriefings are readily available online. Not so for Dr. Kraft's personal handwritten notes for the above missions. Offered here are nine file folders labeled as seen in the photo above. In each are clear copies of the letter-sized legal pad pages he used to take copious handwritten notes as the astronauts described their experiences just days after return from the various missions; they range from nine to thirty-seven single-sided sheets in length. These pages will give an insight available only from one as intimately involved as Kraft. It would seem that there is material here for an article or possibly a book. Very fine.
