I found an interesting document on the Defense Technology Information Center website. It is a PDF document listing a chronology of animal balloon and rocket flights from 1947 to 1961. It also lists manned high altitude balloon flights from 1932 to 1960 and Vostok 1 in April 1961.

Here's the download link. If it doesn't load to your screen, just click STOP and then FILE, SAVE AS from your browser menu:
