Andrew G. Haley was the author of one of the world’s seminal space law texts, Space Law and Government (Appleton-Century-Crofts1963). He is widely considered the world’s first space lawyer. Some of Haley’s papers were given to the late Stephen Gorove, upon whose work the NCRSASL was based. The Center is now processing these papers as the Andrew G. Haley Archive which will be made available to researchers. From time to time, the Center makes available interesting individual documents as they are discovered.
This document is from Haley to Chief Justice Earl Warren with a request to use the Supreme Court Building as a venue for the Annual Congress of the International Astronautical Federation. This document is a letter from Chief Justice Earl Warren in response.
