    Description

    Apollo 1 Crew-Signed Photo from December 1966, Given to Their Personal Secretary for Christmas. An 8" x 10" glossy B&W photo of the three casually posed in front of an early version of their Apollo spacecraft, signed neatly and boldly in black felt tip above their images: "Ed White", "Gus Grissom", and "Roger Chaffee". In the lower margin is a notation by the original recipient: "December 1966 - Killed Jan. 1967". Also included in this lot is a snapshot B&W photo of White with his secretary and another lady, taken just days before the tragic Apollo 1 launchpad test. And, a photo of Charles Schulz drawing Snoopy on a NASA bulletin board (from June 1968). The lower part of the "R" in Roger is lightly brushed, otherwise very fine.

    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.
