Now named Buzz Aldrin Middle School

    Buzz Aldrin's Report Cards (Three) from the Seventh, Eighth, and Twelfth Grades in Montclair, New Jersey, Public Schools, Originally from His Personal Collection, with Signed LOA. Did you ever wonder how a future moonwalker performed in school? Here's the answer. All are printed 8" x 5" cards, filled in by hand, as follows.
    Grade Seven, 1941-1942, Mt. Hebron Middle School: Mostly "B"s and "C"s with an "A" in Health and a "D" in Music. Signed on the verso four times by his father and once by his mother.
    Grade Eight, 1942-1943, Mt. Hebron Middle School: Again mostly "B"s and "C"s with an "A" in Shop. He pulled the "D" in Music up to a "C". Signed on the verso four times by his mother and once by his father.
    Grade Twelve, 1946-1947, Montclair Senior High School: Much better grades with all "A"s save for a "B" in English. Single-sided. Some of these classes would serve him well in future endeavors: Chemistry, Solid Geometry, Advance Algebra, and Trigonometry.

    It's interesting to note that at the beginning of the current school year (2016-2017), Mt. Hebron Middle School was renamed Buzz Aldrin Middle School. He appeared at the ceremony on September 16th.

    Included is the original sleeve for the twelfth grade report card. All cards very fine save for some minor dampstaining. Included with this lot is a signed LOA on Aldrin's personal letterhead.

    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.
