Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $245.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Two TLSs from Time Magazine and Life Magazine, both one page, 6.25 x 6.75 and 7.25 x 11, addressed to Jo Schirra, the wife of Sigma 7 astronaut Wally Schirra. The Time letter, dated March 8, 1961, signed by renowned publisher "Henry R. Luce," in part: "I was very proud indeed to have the wives of the nation's Astronauts appear as part of the interpretation of Life's first quarter century last week. Your attitude toward your unique position and the dignity with which you reflected it contributes importantly to public understanding of your husband's role in the future both of our country and of the world"; and the Life letter, no date, signed "John," in part: "Well, here are the local results. Frankly, I agree with the tough ones who thought Life deserved better of NBC. I also agree with the couple of really discriminating critics who thought the only refreshing and honest thing on the show was you, Rene, Marge, Trudy, Betty, Annie and Louise." In overall fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope for the Time letter.
