TLS, one page, 8 x 10.5, NASA letterhead, April 1, 1970. Letter to Ken Browne, in full: "Thanks for your kind letter and invitation. It was nice to hear from you. Enclosed is the photo you requested and I hope it fills the bill. Thanks for the congratulations on the Masters degree. It was not, however, an honor. I actually completed all the course work and it was a legally earned degree." Stapled to the lower left corner is a newspaper clipping with the headline: "Armstrong Earns UCLA Degree." In fine condition, with light edge toning. The attached article reads: "Astronaut Neil A. Armstrong, first man on the moon, has been awarded a master's degree in aerospace engineering by the University of California. A university spokesman said Thursday that Armstrong, while an Edwards Air Force Base test pilot, had carried on graduate studies from 1955 to 1960. Transferred from the test piloting assignment when he had almost completed academic work for his master's degree, he won final credit with a lecture Thursday on 'Lunar Landing Techniques and Procedures.'
