Wonderful vintage signed "Retrospect" 1947 yearbook for Blume High School, hardcover, 8 x 10.75, 88 pages, signed inside in fountain pen by the 16-year-old Armstrong below his senior class picture, "Neil Armstrong." His senior quote, printed in the short biography beside his image, is appropriately decisive for the first man to set foot on the moon— "He thinks, he acts, 'tis done." Armstrong is also depicted as a member of the Retrospect staff and the student council. In very good to fine condition, with wear and soiling to the covers, and the interior pages still bound, but detached from the spine; a few of the interior pages are loose. While attending Wapakoneta's Blume High School, Armstrong learned to pilot an airplane and was active in the Boy Scouts. After graduating in 1947, Armstrong attended Purdue University to study aeronautical engineering before joining the Navy as a fighter pilot. A fantastic autograph from a defining, early period of his life.
