|JoKepler||Does anyone know if I can obtain William Thornton's autograph through the mail?|
Any help appreciated. Thanks.
|Robert Pearlman||Per his desire, all requests for Dr. Thornton are to be sent c/o the Astronaut Office at JSC (just as if you were writing a current astronaut).|
|RMH||I sent him a photo to sign (at JSC) on Jan. 23 and received it back on March 8.|
|Apollo-Soyuz||The only thing Dr. Thorton will NOT sign is the STS-8 flown covers.|
|jvertrees||Has there been any recent experience in obtaining Dr. Thornton's signature? I have a SMEAT Beta Patch signed by both Col Bobko and Capt Crippen. I of course would love to have Dr. Thornton complete.|
|eurospace||The astronaut office at JSC no longer handles Bill Thornton's autograph mail.|
You'll have to use his home address.
|albatron||Does he respond from there?|

Yes. You need to join a stamped and addressed envelope.
|albatron||Thanks Juergen. |
|jvertrees||About a week ago I received a letter back from Dr. Thornton. I sent a letter to his home address with SASE asking if he will sign a SMEAT Beta cloth patch. He wrote he will be happy to sign but has no facilities at his home to handle artifacts and requested I send the patch to the Astronaut CB code at JSC. I sent the patch right away and will let you know when it is returned. |
|disglobes||I sent him my SMEAT beta cloth patch which was already signed by Crippen and Bobko. He signed it for me. That was two years ago.|
