A 6.25" x 3.75" cloth Maltese flag that was carried aboard Apollo 15 on its mission to the moon with crewmembers Dave Scott, Al Worden, and Jim Irwin. This flag's design, a red and white vertical bicolor with a silver George cross in the upper fly, was adopted in 1964.

    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.
