Scope and Content Note
This series documents Lozier's personal recollections and research, with particular focus on his time working with the Pioneer
Project from 1966 until 1997, first as an engineer and eventually as flight director.
Contained within are digital scrapbooks in which Lozier, after retiring from NASA in 2005, combined historical images with
his own descriptive text to illustrate his personal experiences in the space program and work done on Pioneer 6 through Pioneer
Venus, as well as Lunar Prospector. Several documents demonstrate Lozier's admiration for the Pioneer Project Manager, Charles
Hall, who led the project from 1962 until 1980. Lozier advised on Mark Wolverton's 2004 book about Pioneer interplanetary
probes, The Depths of Space, and this series contains some of their correspondence in which Lozier gives historical context
and clarification to Wolverton, as well as a draft of Wolverton's article about Pioneer Saturn, "Pathfinding the Rings." Lozier
also advised on Hamish Lindsay's webpage about the Pioneer missions, part of a website that honors the Deep Space Network
work performed at the Honeysuckle Creek Tracking Station in Canberra, Australia. Also included: Lozier's curriculum vitae,
retirement business cards, excerpted project data, and short autobiographies; photographs including personal snapshots of
himself, colleagues, flight hardware, and ephemera from the 1960s through the 2000s, as well as images of favorite books a
Pioneer Project bibliography he compiled, trajectory designs, and events; and Lozier's collected clippings and newsletters
relating to the Pioneer Project over many decades, from both NASA and external publications including Star Date, Air and Space,
Mercury, the Journal of the British Interplanetary Society and others, for his personal research and reference.
