Includes THE ORIGINAL COA with full provenance from the highly respected ZARELLI Space Authentication, specializing in space and aviation autographs.
Page was discovered inside White's personal copy of his "Aircraft Structures" textbook while a student at the University of Michigan - and even accompanied White to his Gemini orientation. This page is most likely where White worked out some of the many example problems in the text book.
WHITE remains one of the scarcest and most sought-after Space signatures and documents. Only a handful of White's personal effects have EVER come to market.
