(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Estimate: $400.00 +
Sold Price: $643.13 (includes buyer's premium)


Handwritten school assignment by the 10-year-old McAuliffe, signed across the top, "Christa Corrigan," one page, 7 x 8.5, October 24, 1958. The assignment is headed, "Christa Corrigan, Brook Water, Miss Stapleton, October 24, 1958," and reads, in full: "1. Rick doesn't like history. 2. Don't his brothers like history? 3. I'll take history next year. 4. Weren't you in my science class? 5. The girl's skates are lost. 6. Are Sue's skates lost? 7. Those are Sam's skates. 8. The men's skates are here." In fine condition, with overall toning and tiny chip to left edge. Accompanied by an official NASA lithograph of McAuliffe signed in ballpoint by her mother, Grace Corrigan, a note from Corrigan transmitting the schoolwork, the original mailing envelope, and a copy of the letter sent to her. As McAuliffe was famously to be known as the 'Teacher in Space,' this is a particularly poignant example of her autograph. From the collection of aerospace memorabilia specialist Ken Havekotte.
