EDWARD WHITE II
Plaque awarded astronaut White by Chicago press photographers for "making pictures out of this world," awarded shortly after his historic spacewalk and 1½ years before his tragic death in Apollo I, acquired from White's personal estate.
Ephemera, unsigned, 5½3¾. Wooden plaque with engraved plate, awarded to Edward H. White II by the Chicago Press Photographers Association. White is made an honorary life member of the Association "for making pictures out of this world/June 3-7, 1965". Edward H. White II (1930-1967) was named as a member of the astronaut team selected by NASA in September 1962. He was pilot for Gemini IV, which was a 66-revolution, four-day mission that began on June 3 and ended on June 7, 1965. Photography of Earth terrain was a primary mission objective. During the third revolution, White carried out the first extra vehicular activity (EVA) in the U.S. manned space flight program. He was outside Gemini IV for 21 minutes, and became the first man to control himself in space during EVA with a maneuvering unit. On March 21, 1966, he was named as one of the pilots of the AS-204 mission, the first 3-man Apollo flight. White, Gus Grissom and Roger Chaffee died on Jan. 27, 1967 in the Apollo spacecraft flash fire during a launch pad test at Kennedy Space Center, Florida. This plaque comes from White's estate! Fine condition.
