Description

“Just when I begin to think that perhaps things will relax a bit, it seems that my duties in connection with our manned lunar landing program multiply rather than diminish”

TLS, one page, 8 x 10.5, NASA letterhead, June 30, 1966. Letter to Daniel E. Dupree, Dean of the School of Pure and Applied Sciences at Northeast Louisiana State College. In part: “It was a pleasure for me to receive your letter inviting me to join with you on the occasion of the Science Visitation Day in Monroe…As for the next year or so, a careful examination of my calendar shows clearly that my schedule continues to grow more rugged and uncertain. Just when I begin to think that perhaps things will relax a bit, it seems that my duties in connection with our manned lunar landing program multiply rather than diminish. Much to my distress I have been forced recently to cancel a number of long-standing engagements because of sudden and unexpected changes in my official assignments…Therefore, as much as I would like to participate in your program, I have no choice but to regretfully decline.” In fine condition, with some scattered creasing to the lower right, and filing holes and a paperclip impression to the top border. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
