Bronze medallion, 3-inch diameter, posthumously awarded to Apollo astronaut Ed White in recognition of his induction into the US Astronaut Hall of Fame. The large medallion is affixed to its original blue neck ribbon and displayed within the original blue plush case. White was inducted on March 20, 1993, as part of the second group of honorees that included Neil Armstrong, Gene Cernan, James Lovell, John Young, and James McDivitt. The Astronaut Hall of Fame was formed in the 1980s by the surviving Mercury Seven Astronauts and Betty Grissom to establish a place where space travelers could be remembered and honored. This is believed to be the only Astronaut Hall of Fame inductee’s medal ever offered at auction! Accompanied by a copy of the induction program, induction photo, and souvenir stamp cover.
