Document signed "Neil Armstrong" as Professor in blue ink. Blue ink notations in unknown hand. 1 page, 7½x10¾, with two binder holes at top edge and perforated top, left and right edges. April 15, 1974. Class list for a 3-credit Aircraft Flight Test II class at the University of Cincinnati. It lists 12 students, one of whom was auditing the class and another who was taking it on a pass-fail basis. Armstrong resigned from NASA in 1971 to become a professor of aeronautical engineering at the University of Cincinnati (1971-1978). He came to the university with only a master's degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Southern California, which he earned in 1970, and a bachelor's degree in aeronautical engineering from Purdue University. But we think the two-time astronaut had some practical experience that made up for his lack of academic chops. On July 20, 1969, Armstrong became the first man to walk on the Moon's surface. Civilian Neil Alden Armstrong (1930-2012) had entered the U.S. space program as a senior NASA research pilot. A fan of aviation from the age of nine, Armstrong had his pilot's license by the age of 16, and, after studying aeronautical engineering at Purdue for two years, went to Pensacola, Florida for Navy flight training. Serving in Korea at the age of 21, Armstrong flew 78 combat missions and won three Air Medals. For the seven years prior to his selection by NASA, Armstrong was a civilian pilot at Edwards Air Force Base, testing experimental aircraft and working as an engineer. A veteran of Gemini 8, Armstrong thrilled the world when he stepped off the ladder of the Lunar Excursion Module Eagle and spoke the first words heard from the surface of the Moon: "That's one small step for man; one giant leap for mankind." Lightly toned, stained, soiled and creased. Light tears at left and right edges and in top right corner. Lightly rounded corners with lightly creased top left corner. Light dent in left side. Folded twice and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
