Description

    Signed by LBJ to Gus Grissom.

    Photograph Inscribed and Signed by Lyndon Johnson as President. Black and white 10" x 8" photograph of the Gemini 3 astronauts and President Lyndon B. Johnson. Shortly before the mission, astronauts Gus Grissom (command pilot), John Young (pilot), and Wally Schirra (back-up command pilot) posed for an outdoor photo with the President. Inscribed by LBJ: "To Virgil Grissom with high regard. Lyndon B. Johnson." Grissom was the second American to fly in space, making the first manned flight of the Gemini spacecraft very much a test flight, lasting less than five hours. Grissom would be killed two years later, along with astronauts Ed White and Roger Chaffee, during a training exercise for the Apollo 1 mission. Photo is in excellent condition. Matted and framed to an overall size of 14.25" x 12.5".
