The National Association of Rocketry (NAR) has been around since 1957. At one time, the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) was pretty tightly joined with them in covering model rocketry events and promoting model rocketry. In fact, for while there was space allotted in American Aircraft Modeler, AMA's monthly magazine, for model rocketry. From February 1968 through August 1969 there was a newsletter feature entitled "Model Rocketeer" in addition to a separate article, often written by G. Harry Stine. A complete list of all editions is provided below.
The NAR and AMA still work together. For example, the National Aeronautic Association (NAA) delegates authority for aeromodeling and spacemodeling to the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA), who has in turn delegated Spacemodeling (model rocketry) to the NAR.

sis was placed on the group last September ... MDRA's newsletter "Misfire" edited by Vic Cross and printed by Juanita Severe presents news from members, construction hints, a contest calendar, and model plans . . . an item which impressed us recently was mention of hobby dealer Mark Fleischman of Denver who makes a special effort to assist rocketeers with items needed onthe-spot at section contests, etc .... perhaps if your section invited out (set up an .agreement, that is) a similar local type, he would: 1) have an automatic display for you, 2) answer questions of visitors, 3) anticipate and order items ahead, 4) publicize your section downtown, and 5) furnish some worthy prizes too!
