    Description

    The day of the famous "Moon Speech" at Rice University

    Bill Taub: Collection of 200+ Photos of John F. Kennedy's Visit to Houston's Manned Spacecraft Center and Rice University on September 12, 1962, in Album. A legendary day in Space history: President Kennedy visited the new facility accompanied by Vice President Johnson, escorted by John Glenn and Scott Carpenter and presented his now-famous speech to a crowd of 40,000 at Rice University Stadium. This 7" x 12" x 1.5" album contains more than 200 B&W photos of 5" x 3" or 3" x 3". NASA's official photographer covered the entire trip, start to finish, and these were likely proofs that he kept for his own collection. We have certainly never seen many of these images and feel that this lot should appeal to our Political collectors also. Very fine. From the estate collection of legendary NASA photographer Bill Taub.
