Guenter Wendt's Personal Copy of Walt Cunningham's "The All-American Boys" Signed and Certified by Wendt. (New York: Macmillan, 1977). A second printing of the original version of Cunningham's candid look at America's space program. Signed on the free front endpaper: "G. Wendt" and "From my personal collection/ Guenter F. Wendt/ Pad leader". Cunningham speaks of him in the book: "In the White Room we were greeted by the man we affectionately called the 'pad f├╝hrer.' Gunter Wendt, a German immigrant, served as the major domo of the White Room for manned launches dating back to the Mercury days. His authority was nearly absolute at the spacecraft level where he tolerated no nonsense, from the flight crew on down. This attitude endeared him to us." Dust cover good; book very good.
