Project Management, 60s style

Here is a link to a book on project management from 1970. It's a second edition of the original published in 1964.

What I originally found amazing is that it's a fairly sophisticated view of project management. The first chapter is particularly enlightening since it discusses the inspirations for the methods detailed in the book. Basically, there was research from as far back as 1896 on streamlining production processes that are being applied to research in the late 1950s that culminated in the findings described in this book.
