Lot 912: Collection of seven items related to Flynn's early academic career, including: a report card from 1953; a 1957 standardized testing receipt signed in fountain pen by Flynn; a 1957 mid-term report card; a summer reading list; and a few letters from teachers related to his application to MIT. Two comments from his teachers on his 1957 mid-term report card include, "Sean was too busy with the play to do an adequate job in algebra. Perhaps now he will find himself again," and, "Sean is erratic in his study habits, working diligently for a few days, then playing for a few. He is too individualistic to enjoy conformity—a trait which, while not altogether undesirable, is not conducive to the best study habits." Also includes Flynn's personally-owned and -used slide rule in its leather sheath. In overall fine condition, with expected document wear. From the estate of Sean Flynn's mother, actress Lili Damita.
