Description


TLS signed “John W. Young,” one page, 8 x 10.5, NASA letterhead, September 11, 1974. Letter to Sean Fitzpatrick, a research assistant at the National Air and Space Museum. In part: "Items flown on spacecraft are the property of the astronaut or the government depending on the mission kit in which these items are flown. Items flown in the Astronaut Preference Kits are distributed in accordance with the procedures listed in NASA Management Instruction 8020.19A of July 20, 1973, a copy of which is enclosed for information. Astronauts' personal idiosyncrasies are the personal property of each astronaut. You will have to contact them individually to discover what these personal idiosyncrasies are. As to the location of the pin-ups painted on the back of the window shades on GT-10, as well as the discovery of some personal idiosyncrasies, I recommend you contact the present Director of the National Air and Space Museum for starters." In fine condition. At this time, Young was serving as Chief of the Astronaut Office and would have been the go-to source for any inquiries from the Smithsonian. An interesting letter concerning the disposition of relics flown during the heyday of America's space program.
