The first two pages are a memo on the presentation of a proposal for a National Security Agency museum. The current museum has its origins in this proposal despite the significant differences between it and the National Cryptologic Museum as it now exists.

Proposal
Background
NSA
possesses
inits
museum
storage
account
t}e
greatestsinglecollection of crlrytologicartifaetsin
the
world.
With
over
?,000
artifacts,
thecollection includesitems
dating
taek
to
fre
Rev-olutionary
War
and
a
rar6
book
collection
which
contains
volumes
dating
to
the
r6th
Century.Unfortunately,NSA
does
not
have
any
space
dedicated
for a
Euseum-
'drrational
necessity,
hasalways
taL,en
precedenceover
a
dedieated
museum
inpreviousplansfor
space
eonsiderations.
Aslong
as
NSA
wascomprisedof
people
whohadereated
the
Agenq/s
past,the
lackof
a
museum
was
notofgreat
import
Theoccasional
displays
in
a
room
or
hallway
served
as
reminders
!o
most
of
theworkforce
ofevents
in
whichtheyhad
participated.But asthe
Agencymatured
and tfiese
older
people
retiredand
the worhforcebegan
a
more
iapid
turnover,
the
lack
of
a
museum
beeimemore
critical.
The veryfirnetion
ofa
rnuseum
in
this
environment
haschanged.
Exhibits
should
sprve to
educate
a
workforcewhich
has
not
participated
in
the
historyof
NSA.
The
orientation
of
this
youngerworkforee
in
theaccompliihmenL
of
NSAand the
eryptologicprofession
will
put
forth
a
sense
of
participationin
a
dynamic
organization
whieh
does
not-havea
public
history.
Therdore, with
a
workforce
whichis
becoming-increasingly
younger
and
less
experienced,
it
is imperativethat NSA
placea
higher
priority
ona-dedicated
ipace
for-its
crlrytologicmuseum.
