Description


TLS, one page, 7 x 8.75, personal letterhead, July 18, 1969. Letter to Paul Miller, in full: “It was a great pleasure to be with you during the historic countdown for Apollo 11. I was delighted to be able to take part in the launch honoring Jim Webb, and appreciate your hospitality.” In fine condition. Johnson was a central figure in the development of the American space program: he passed legislation to establish NASA while leading the Senate; he chaired the National Aeronautics and Space Council as vice president; and his presidential term saw American spaceflight progress from Gemini 1 through Apollo 8. The recipient, Paul Miller, served as the head of the Gannett newspaper chain for over sixteen years, while also serving as the top official of the Associated Press from 1963 to 1977. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
