Transcribe the Sally K. Ride Papers and More

Updated: Nov 13, 2020

From the archives of the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum:

"NASA astronaut Dr. Sally K. Ride became a national icon of achievement in science and space on June 18, 1983, when she became the first American woman to fly in space. The National Air and Space Museum is pleased to announce that the Sally K. Ride Papers, consisting of over 23 cubic feet (38,640 pages!) of archival material chronicling Ride’s career from the 1970s through the 2010s, have been fully scanned and attached to an online finding aid, similar to a table of contents, for her historical papers."

You can assist with the effort! Go to, scroll to the bottom of the article, and click "Get Started." Currently, the papers are 78% transcribed. Maybe you'll be able to help get it to 100%!
