    Description

    Jack Swigert Signed Color Photo. An 8" x 10" NASA color litho print of the "Apollo 13 Liftoff" signed: "To Dorothy Frooks/ This was the start of/ the most fantastic trip ever!/ All best wishes to a/ great lady/ Jack Swigert/ Apollo 13". Dorothy Frooks was a legendary lawyer, author, actress, and suffragist with strong ties to the military; she served as judge advocate in World War II. On the verso, Swigert has written: "Committee on Sciences and Astronautics/ U.S. House of Representatives/ Washington DC 20015/ 202-225-6375". He may have been sharing his contact information with Frooks as Swigert was staff director of this house committee for a period of time just before his death. There are several lightly smeared portions in both sections of writing. Great inscription and association. Overall very fine condition.
