Hi Peggy, 

On the other side of the Atlantic, Gerard Le Lann, who worked at Stanford with Vint Cerf on the Arpanet, has kept several prints of electronic messages, particularly between Vint Cerf and Leonard Kleinrock, dated 1973-1974. 
It should be possible, too, to find similar emails that were exchanged on the Cyclades network (which was terminated in 1977), or even earlier on the internal GE time-sharing systems, for example between software developers between Boston and Paris.

I’m intrigued by recent messages concerning early electronic messages. Should anyone have examples of such messages and related software, I’d be delighted to consider them for the Smithsonian collections (complementing the materials elsewhere that Janet and others have used). 

Also, on the book and movie Hidden Figures , two recent blogs might be of interest:
