    Description

    Charlie Duke and Alan Shepard: Signed Admiral Farragut Academy Texas Alumni Reunion Program from the Personal Collection of Charlie Duke. This academy, a college preparatory school with naval training, was founded in 1933. It has the unique honor to have graduated two of the only twelve men to ever walk on the moon. Alan Shepard was the first American in space and the fifth to walk on the moon (Apollo 14); he graduated from the New Jersey campus in 1941. Charlie Duke was the tenth man to walk on the moon (Apollo 16); he graduated from the Florida campus in 1953. Offered here is a folder, 7" x 9" in size, from the February 10, 1990, Alumni Reunion with both signatures on the front cover. Inside, along with the details of the gathering, is a 5" x 7" color photo of the two famous grads taken that day. At the bottom of the front cover is a note from Duke and a second autograph: "From my personal collection. Charlie Duke Apollo 16". Very fine condition with a small scrape on the front.
