    Neil Armstrong Signed 1947 Blume High School Yearbook, The Retrospect, Wapakoneta, Ohio. An 8" x 11" hardbound book of eighty-eight pages, with padded and embossed covers. This was the senior year for Neil Armstrong and he signed this copy for senior classmate Shirley Schultz. His "Neil Armstrong" ink signature in an interesting block letter style appears on page twelve next to his senior picture. This is his only signature but we note additional photos on: pages 44-45 (Band group and officers photos); page 52 (Senior Hi-Y group photo); page 57 (School Council group and officers photos); and page 65 (Retrospect Staff group photo). Quite the leader, even in high school. Some minor damage to the cover but contents are generally fine. A statement from a paper conservator is included that reports on some minor hinge mending and restoration with Japanese paper.
