Photograph signed: "James A. McDivitt". B/w, 8x10. James McDivitt (born 1929), a Korean War combat pilot, was selected as an astronaut by NASA in September 1962. He served as Command Pilot for Gemini 4 (June 3-7, 1965) and Commander of Apollo 9 (a ten-day earth orbital flight launched on March 3, 1969). Gemini 4 witnessed the first EVA (space walk) by Edward White, while Apollo 9 featured the first separation and docking of the lunar module (LEM) by Russell Schweickart. Named Manger of the Apollo Spacecraft Program in August 1969, he was Program Manager for the Apollo 12 to Apollo 16 missions. McDivitt retired from the Air Force as a Brigadier General in June 1972, when he also left NASA for the private sector. A thin strip in upper right has been cut from photo so that the astronaut's printed name shows through from a thin, white sheet attached to back. Otherwise, fine condition.
