Does anybody have any idea if there is some kind of list or writing that has the names of some of the VIP's who attended the Apollo 11 launch?

You might try contacting Jack King (former Chief of Public Information and Public Affairs Officer for NASA). If he doesn't have or know of an actual list, he would remember many names of folks who were there.

I'll bet there is at least a partial list (if not a complete list) in NASA's archives, so NASA's history office would also be a good place to start.
