Description


TLS signed “Virgil I. Grissom,” one page, 8 x 10.5, NASA letterhead, January 16, 1963. Letter of recommendation for Guenter Wendt. In part: “The success of Project Mercury could only come about through dedicated effort, correct engineering procedures, and proper management. Mr. Wendt has performed in an outstanding manner in all of these areas. His participation in the prelaunch testing of the Mercury vehicles has added immeasurably to the success of these missions. Mr. Wendt supervised the preparation of my spaceship, and was the last person to inspect and approve its condition prior to launch…I had complete confidence in the decisions made by Mr. Wendt…The highest compliment I can pay Mr. Wendt is to express my willingness, in fact the desire, to have him supervise the preparation of the next vehicle which I might fly.” In fine condition. Excellent content from the early years of the American space program. The Guenter Wendt Collection, ex. Ken Havekotte. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
