ALS, two pages, 8 x 10.5, May 26, 1959. Letter to Meet the Press producer Lawrence E. Spivak, in full: "Thank you for your letter of May 14 regarding my possible appearance on Meet the Press. Would you possibly be interested in having the group of seven on the program together? I realize this is a little larger group than you usually interview. We are, however, making every effort to maintain the seven Astronauts as a team in virtually all our activities, including, where possible, events such as you suggest. This is solely an effort to eliminate as much friction within the group as possible, which I am sure you will agree is highly desirable in a group that must work together as closely as we are on Project Mercury. I would be honored to appear on your program and I'm sure the other six members of our group would feel the same way. I hope the above meets with your approval and that we can set a mutually agreeable date. I will await your reply." In fine condition. Accompanied by an unsigned carbon copy of Spivak's original letter.
