From the links Bill offers, we may learn that the original illustrator of The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress was comics artist Gray Morrow, of Farnham's Freehold, Jack Gaughan, and of Podkayne, Virgil Finlay.

Finlay's stuff appears in two-color printing in some installments, not necessarily improving his art. In fact the printing processes of a cheap magazine don't really do justice to his exquisite scratchboard work. I note that March 1963 seems to be an all-Finlay issue of If, cover and interiors.

Lots of good artwork to be found, including Chesley Bonestell, EC Comics artist Wally Wood, Emsh, and others.

Heinlein's review of "Space Medicine"

"Making of Destination Moon"(from Starlog).

Opus G.192a -- his congressional testimony on "Applications of Space Technology for the Elderly and Handicapped" to the House of Representatives Select Committee on Aging and the Committee on Science and Technology -- exists in two forms: a formal written document, which he submitted for inclusion in the record, and his verbal testimony. They overlap, but are different enough to be separately noted here.

Verbal

Written

I didn't pore through them to find all the Heinlein, but Galaxy and If magazines seem to be available now for free on the Internet Archive.

Thanks, Bill. I should have checked that before I posted.
