Lot 20: Pogue's USAF Test Pilot School Instructor's Materials

This collection of notes and papers comes from the personal collection of the late Bill Pogue, Skylab astronaut, from his time as an instructor at the US Air Force Aerospace Research Test Pilot School. This folder, labeled "Vectors 65 C, 14 Mar 66" in Pogue's handwriting, offers a glimpse into Pogue's life just one month before he was selected by NASA to become an astronaut, in April 1966.

The set is bound in a brown portfolio and pertains to Pogue's course on vectors. The collection includes a schedule of classes with Pogue's initials in several places, ditto and Xerox copies of classroom lessons, tests and notes, several hand-written loose-leaf pages, many of which contain Pogue's own notes and corrections.

Upon donating the materials to ASF, Pogue included a post it note affixed to the inside front cover, on which he wrote: "I taught Operational Mathematics at the Test Pilot School. These are notes & exercises."

This lot also includes a signed portrait print of Pogue.

A certificate of authenticity signed by Astronaut Scholarship Foundation Executive Director Tammy Knowles accompanies this lot.

ASF reserves the right to disqualify the high bidder, to reject the high bid and to accept a bid from a lower bidder for any reason within their discretion, which shall be exercised in good faith.
