    Alan Shepard and Chris Kraft: Signed 1973/74 Field Grade Officer Effectiveness Report for Charlie Duke, from his Personal Collection. This 8" x 10.5" pre-printed, two-sided form was filled out and signed on April 15, 1974 by "Alan B. Shepard, Jr." (1923-198), Chief, Astronaut Office, and on May 8, 1974 by "Christopher C. Craft Jr.", Director. Duke was once again given high praise with another "Absolutely Superior" checked under Overall Evaluation, and "Outstanding Growth Potential" checked in Promotion Potential. Comments include: "Duke has continued to perform in an absolutely outstanding manner during the period of this report. He had just finished supporting the Apollo space missions, including his own highly successful lunar landing..." and "...I consider Colonel Duke to be one of the most outstanding individuals assigned to the Johnson Space Center..." Extremely fine condition.

    Included with this lot is a handwritten and signed Letter of Authenticity from Charles M. Duke, Jr. on his personal letterhead stating, in part: "[this report] was a part of my official file as a USAF officer and, astronaut... At this point in my astronaut career, Apollo was over and I had been selected for duties related to the Space Shuttle... It is signed by Alan B. Shepard who was Chief of the Astronaut's Office and one of the 'original seven' group of astronauts... This report has been part of my personal records since I retired from the Space Program. May it remind you of the dynamic days of the early Shuttle Program and the completion of Apollo."
