    Thanks to you and Ron for your responses.
    Just for the record, my assumption that the Directorate of Space was a
    precursor of Space Command was wrong.  I asked someone who is familiar with
    such arcana, and he said that the DoS was a component of the office of the
    USAF Deputy Chief of Staff for Development (also known as DCS/D and later
    DSC/R&D),  who  was the Air Staff officer in charge of advanced development
    in the Pentagon.  Space Command came out of a fusion of other entities that
    had operational space responsibilities.
