Collection of nine flown photographic film fragments carried on the Apollo 11 mission, each thin slice measuring approximately .75″ long, all affixed to explanatory sheets signed by Supervisory Aerospace Technologist Richard W. Underwood. Underwood’s presentation certificates indicate that the film “was carried to the surface of the moon by astronauts Neil A. Armstrong and Edwin E. Aldrin in the Lunar Module ‘Eagle’ on July 20–21, 1969. The film is Eastman Kodak Type 3400, Panatomic-X.” Includes the original envelope that contained these sheets with a typed memo to “Dr. Rees” by Wernher von Braun’s longtime assistant Bonnie Holmes, “Dick Underwood from MSC, Houston, gave Dr. von Braun a stack of these Apollo 11 mementos. We have given a few out, sent some to Washington for him to use there, and here are extras.” In overall fine condition, with an irregular block of toning to one sheet. These Apollo 11 mementos were given to von Braun and when he left the Marshall Spaceflight Center in February 1970, his successor handed them off to Bonnie Holmes.
