TLS, one page, 8.5 x 11, Grumman letterhead, January 23, 1989. Letter to Guenter Wendt related to his retirement. In part: “It does not seem possible that the ‘Pad Fuehrer’ could be retiring—35 is too young to retire! I remain at my usual pace, now helping Space Station getting designed and built, so haven’t the time for much nostalgia. It is incredible to think that this coming April 11 will mark 19 years since that emotional day you strapped us into ‘Odyssey’ for the uneventful Apollo 13 journey to the moon. I also won’t forget Apollo 8 and 11 when I was very proud to have served as a member of your close out crew.” Also includes an official glossy 8 x 10 NASA photo of Wendt overseeing an Apollo 13 egress test, signed in black felt tip by Wendt. In fine condition. The Guenter Wendt Collection, ex. Ken Havekotte. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
