TLS signed “John,” one page, 8 x 10.5, NASA letterhead, March 1973. Letter to Harold 'Hal' Collins, who was retiring from his position as Chief of Mission Support. In part: "We sure appreciate everything you did for us and the teams that supported us during the Apollo missions. My special thanks for everything you did for me during my extended stays at the Cape. You helped make the quarantines liveable—which was practically an impossible task. You sure did a great job of greasing the skids for the flights! If you ever get over this way please drop by for a terrible cup of coffee (unlike those in the crew quarters)." In fine condition. Collins began his NASA career as Contracting Officer during the Mercury program and went on to serve as Chief of the Mission Support Office at the Kennedy Space Center, retiring in 1973. He supported, in some capacity, Young's historic flights on Gemini 3, Gemini 10, Apollo 10, and Apollo 16. A wonderful letter recognizing one of NASA's many able administrators.
