    Celebrating the successful splashdown

    Apollo 13 Mission Control Photo Signed by Ten Including Fred Haise, Gene Kranz, Jack Lousma, and Joe Kerwin. A 10" x 8" glossy B&W photo of Mission Control at Houston celebrating the successful landing of Apollo 13. It is signed in black felt tip as follows: "Fred Haise/ Apollo 13 LMP", "Jack Lousma/ CAPCOM", "Gerry Griffin", "William Windler", "Gene Kranz", "Joe Kerwin", "Sy Liebergot/ Apollo 13 EECOM", "Jerry Bostick/ FDO", "Guenter F. Wendt", and one other. Griffin is giving the "thumbs up" sign and has a cigar in his mouth; Gene Kranz is giving a loud whistle. We note that Robert Gilruth can be seen in the background having his cigar lighted by Chris Kraft. A successful ending to a perilous flight. Other signatures could be added. Excellent. From the Collection of Dr. Bruce Wayne Overton.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
