    Description

    Edward H. White II Memorial Fund Silk Scarf with Signed Photo of the King and Queen of Belgium. Three items directly from the White family collection, as follows:
    Scarf- A red, white, and blue silk scarf of approximately 32" x 32" with several rows of facsimile astronaut autographs as part of an attractive diagonal pattern. The original tag states that it is "100% Pure Silk" and made in the U.S.A. exclusively for the White Memorial Fund. There were originally only 200 of these made for an astronaut wives' luncheon. Like new condition, stored folded.
    NASA Photo- A 10" x 8" "red letter" glossy color photo (S-69-35514) with purple caption on verso. It pictures the King and Queen of Belgium being presented with a scarf just like this one by Mrs. Patricia White, widow of Gemini 4 astronaut Ed White II, and Robert R. Gilruth, MSC director. Their majesties were on a tour of the Manned Spacecraft Center in Houston on May 22, 1969. Extremely fine condition.
    Signed Photo- A 5" x 7" B&W photo in a presentation folder, signed by Baudouin I, King of the Belgians (dated May 22, 1969), and Queen Fabiola. Extremely fine condition.
