Lot 526: TLS, two pages, 8 x 10.5, NASA letterhead, December 6, 1962. Letter to Leonard Fulton, in part: "You and I cannot lose our identity nor escape our responsibilities by considering ourselves an infinitesimal, insignificant part of all mankind. Humanity is an aggregate of individuals. We can be yanked out of the rank and file and held squirming at judgment's bar at any time to answer for our actions. As our security is composed of individuals, its regulation should be based on the individual, on his rights, dignity, and worth. It seems to me that civilization has reached the point where the deep and age-old divisions among men and nations must be healed. The common goals of freedom, truth, justice, peace, and security must be held up within sight and reach all men." In fine condition, with staples holes to upper left corner.
