NASA Apollo Lunar Module News Reference

Sherre Boothman writes, "I got copies of the CSM and LM News references from the office of Senator Lloyd Benson (D, Texas) in the autumn of 1972.  The CSM News Reference did not have a cover when I received it; the LM News Reference is in its original notebook."

This edition of the News Reference applies to a mission similar to Apollos 15, 16, 17, with the LM crew performing three 7-hour EVAs with the Lunar Roving Vehicle.
