    Description

    Purdue University: "Our Place in Space" Reunion Poster Signed by Fourteen Astronaut Alumni, Directly From The Armstrong Family Collection™, Certified and Encapsulated by Collectibles Authentication Guaranty. A two-sided 16" x 28" poster, published to commemorate the Purdue Astronaut Reunion, October 22-23, 1999, with a handsome space graphic on one side and the photos and biographies of twenty-one Purdue-educated NASA astronauts on the other. In the 1950s, Purdue expanded their aviation program to include advanced aerospace technology, giving rise to their nickname as the "Cradle of Astronauts." Graduates include Gus Grissom, Neil Armstrong, and Gene Cernan. A perfect display item for the den or office of a proud Boilermaker. Excellent, never folded. Sealed in a numbered archival holder. This lot will include a Statement of Provenance signed by Neil Armstrong's sons, Rick and Mark.

    The following astronauts have each signed this poster near their photo and biography: "Don Williams" (STS-51-D, STS-34); "John Blaha" (STS-29, STS-33, STS-43, STS-58, STS-79/81); "Roy Bridges" (STS-51-F); "John Casper" (STS-36, STS-54, STS-62, STS-77); "Loren Shriver" (STS-51-C, STS-31, STS-46); "Dick Covey" (STS-51-I, STS-26, STS-38, STS-61); "Guy Gardner" (STS-27, STS-35); "Mike McCulley" (STS-34); "Charlie Walker" (STS-41-D, STS-51-D, STS-61-B); "Gary Payton" (STS-51-C); "Mark Brown" (STS-28, STS-48); "Janice Voss" (STS-57, STS-63, STS-83, STS-94, STS-99); "Mark L.

    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.
