Robert, the PR wiz, asked a few months back if anyone knew of a child, 8-12 or so, who collected astronaut autographs. The result of the inquiry has now hit the news stand. Thanks Robert.

The new issue of "Martha Stewart Kids" (the back-to-school/Halloween issue) has a two-page spread featuring some of my daughter's autographs (A. Fisher, Glenn, Gordon, Magnus, Sellers, Bean). The photos of the autographs look great. I suspect the brief interview piece was edited to make Anna sound like a nine year old, but the basics are correct.

The piece is actually at the back of the insert entitled "how now" within the magazine. No internet link I fear, but the magazine should be on most news stands, either in the kids or crafts section, most likely (it has a light blue upper third with the magazine's name, while the bottom two-third is split into six pictures, almost all Halloween oriented).

William, please post a link to an image of the article or email it to me. I have a little girl too and that is really neat. Congratulations.

William, I'd like to get that link too. My 12 year old daughter has been collecting since she was 10. More "keepers of the flame"!

Great to hear that some cS members have daughters collecting astronaut autographs!

My 11-year old daughter collects since last year. I began in the early 90`s collecting autographs dedicated to her from the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo astronauts I met several times in person. She will continue on our collection in the future!

I am looking forward to introduce some of the moonwalkers to her. Happy collecting!
