III. Report from Chairperson Marx
Ms. Marx let the Committee aware of the “University of Central Florida, Florida Space Coast History Project”. Ms. Andren will ask Ms. Bozeman to link the following website to the South Brevard Historical Socitey website of http://www.southbrevardhistory.org/home.html.

The Florida Space Coast History Project has been established to preserve Florida’s unique space and missile heritage. Since supporting its first missile launch on 24 July 1950, the Cape has become synonymous with space and missiles. It is from our shores alone that humanity departed on its first voyages beyond the celestial bonds of Earth and ventured on to the ancient seas of the Moon.
For more than 50 years the story of the worker who anonymously contributed to the hundreds of manned and unmanned missions from the Cape has been ignored. Our oral history effort is dedicated to record the heritage of Cape Canaveral and Kennedy Space Center from those who experienced it first hand. It is our mission to ensure the perspective of the tens of thousands workers (and their families) who contributed to this nation’s formative missile and space endeavors are preserved.
We are working with the Media Convergence Laboratory at UCF to construct a three-dimensional, virtual replica of Cape Canaveral as it existed in the 1950s and 1960s. This virtual environment will be used to educate and inspire today’s youth of the Cape’s essential role in the history of many of humanity’s greatest achievements.
The project also houses a large collection of digital images—currently over 35,000—and documents pertaining to the missile programs, manned space flight and the history of Brevard County.
We are actively seeking the donation of images, documents, and specific 3-Dimensional items for our archives. For those that wish to keep their historic materials please consider allowing the project to borrow the items for a short period so that we may digitally scan them and preserve your legacy and that of the Cape for future generations.
We would like to thank the WD-40 Corporation for their generous support helping to preserve the Atlas Missile Collection at the San Diego Aerospace Museum.
IV. Projects
