Vintage glossy 10 x 8 red-numbered NASA photo of Pilot Ed White performing his historic extravehicular activity, the first by an American astronaut, during the historic Gemini 4 mission, signed and inscribed in black ink, "To Ralph, Best Regards, Edward White II.” Reverse bears "A Kodak Paper" watermarks. Includes two original vintage NASA lapel pins—a miniature capsule and an "Apollo NASA" rocket/moon logo. In very good to fine condition, with a few small creases and surface dings. Accompanied by a black-numbered NASA photo of the Hand-Held Self-Maneuvering Unit used by White during his EVA, and a pair of NASA certificates—an Apollo Achievement Award and a Group Achievement Award to The Gemini Support Team—both of which were issued to the recipient of the photo, Ralph F. Herrmann, a NASA engineer who assisted in producing White's EVA drill used during the Gemini 4 mission.
