Lot 488: TLS signed "Neil," one page, 8.5 x 11, personal letterhead, February 3, 2007. Letter to Doris Weber, a former classmate, and organizer of their 65th high school reunion, who Armstrong affectionately calls "Punky" in the greeting. In full: "Thank you for your letter breaking the news that we are 60 years older than when we graduated. I remember when my Uncle Ray came back to St. Mary's for his 40th and visited us. I thought I would never get old enough to get to a 40th anniversary of graduation. My calendar currently has the June and August dates available, but not July 28th. I have no preference between June and August. I, of course, will be there if at all possible. I look forward to seeing you and the rest of the gang. 60? Really?" Also included is Armstrong's RSVP for the reunion, filling in his name on the slip, "M/M N. A. Armstrong," as well as the original mailing envelope, addressed in Armstrong's hand. In fine condition. Armstrong graduated from Blume High School in Wapakoneta in 1947. A casual and friendly letter from the normally reclusive first man on the moon.
