    Description

    Space Shuttle: Purdue University "Our Place in Space" Poster Signed by Sixteen Astronaut Alumni. A two-sided 16" x 28" poster, published to commemorate the Purdue Astronaut Reunion, October 22-23, 1999, with a handsome space graphic on one side and the photos and biographies of twenty-one Purdue-educated NASA astronauts on the other. In the 1950s, Purdue expanded their aviation program to include advanced aerospace technology, giving rise to their nickname as the "Cradle of Astronauts." Graduates include Gus Grissom, Neil Armstrong, and Gene Cernan. A perfect display item for the den or office of a proud Boilermaker. Excellent condition, never folded.

    The following astronauts have each signed this poster near their photo and biography: "Don Williams" (STS-51-D, STS-34); "John Blaha" (STS-29, STS-33, STS-43, STS-58, STS-79/81); "Roy Bridges" (STS-51-F); "John Casper" (STS-36, STS-54, STS-62, STS-77); "Loren Shriver" (STS-51-C, STS-31, STS-46); "Dick Covey" (STS-51-I, STS-26, STS-38, STS-61); "Guy Gardner" (STS-27, STS-35); "Mike McCulley" (STS-34); "Jerry L Ross" (STS-61-B, STS-27, STS-37, STS-55, STS-74, STS-88, STS-110); "Charlie Walker" (STS-41-D, STS-51-D, STS-61-B); "Gary Payton" (STS-51-C); "Mark Brown" (STS-28, STS-48); "Janice Voss" (STS-57, STS-63, STS-83, STS-94, STS-99); "Gregory J. Harbaugh" (STS-39, STS-54, STS-71, STS-82); "Mark L. Polansky" (STS-98, STS-116, STS-127); and "Dave Wolf" (STS-58, STS-86/89, STS-112, STS-127).

    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.
