Purdue University 1954 Debris hardcover yearbook dating to Armstrong’s senior year, 9.5 x 12.25, 512 pages, featuring two images of Neil Armstrong, two images of his wife-to-be Janet Shearon, and one image of then-sophomore Gene Cernan. Armstrong appears on page 100 in the section of senior class portraits and on page 370 as a member of Phi Delta Theta. Shearon appears on page 218 as a member of a swim team and on page 419 with Alpha Chi Omega. Cernan, a sophomore and one of Janet’s best friends, appears as a member of Phi Gamma Delta on page 373. In fine condition, with light bumps to corners and spine edges, and an ownership notation to the front pastedown. A fitting piece of Apollo history, as Armstrong was the first man to set foot on the lunar surface and Cernan was the last to do so. RR Auction COA.
