    An amazing and historical archive regarding Wally Schirra's Mercury mission

    Mercury-Atlas 8 Sigma 7: NASA Complete Original "Mission Rules & Flight Plan" Binder with Several Files of Flight Control / CapCom Teletype Printouts. This is truly an incredible compilation of original material as issued to Frank S. Kawalkiewicz of Langley. As follows in no particular order.
    (1) Original government binder hand-labeled on the front: "MA - 8/16 Mission Rules & Flight Plan", containing both complete documents. The Flight Plan is dated September 10, 1962, and the Mission Rules, August 3, 1962 (Final Draft). Both are heavily annotated. Front cover label is loose, overall fine.
    (2) A pressboard folder with a handwritten notation on the cover: "I S I's" containing a number of teletype printouts with a handwritten log on the inside front. Fine.
    (3-6) Four cardstock folders labeled "Flt Control" and/or "CapCom" (or some variation) containing dozens of teletype printouts relating to various aspects of the mission. Very good to fine.
    An absolute goldmine of inside information about this mission. Please view multiple photos on our website.

    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.
