Please could someone help me identify the following autograph.

I obtained this signed Skylab cover in 2004 and it was one of six cosmonaut autographs including Artyukhin, Sevastyanov and Nikolayev. Aside from one all the other cosmonaut signatures are on Apollo 16 or Apollo-Soyuz covers.

I've never been able to identify this signature and it's always intrigued me.

As you can see it is on a Skylab cover stamped 'Houston TX May 26 1973'.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

I am helping a fellow shuttle worker identify all the shuttle astronaut signatures she collected on a shuttle launch photo, and I'm having difficulty identifying one.

I came across this cover with a few autographs on it. Can anyone help to tell me who they are actually for?

The only one I am able to distinguish is Vic Clarke which I think is Victoria Clarke. Any help would be appreciated.

A quick Google search turned up an excerpt of the book "Flight to Mercury", that indicates Dr William Pickering was the JPL Director in the early 1970s, Walker E. "Gene" Giberson was the project manager for Mariner Venus/Mercury, John Casani was the Mariner spacecraft manager, and Victor Clarke worked on mission analysis/enginering. The project scientist was a Dr James Dunne.

The Skylab cover above looks like it was signed by George Hardy who was SRB Project Manager at Marshall Space Flight Center during shuttle.

Anyone have any ideas on who has signed this? It was signed at the Cape on the eve of launch. I know President Johnson and Tom Stafford are on there. Almost looks like a bad Anders in upper left corner. Thanks.

I have two photos with autographs. One looks to be an Apollo launch photo (14?) and the other is a headshot with a Gemini capsule that I don't recognize.

These came from an estate sale of Anita Mitchell (Edgar Mitchell's ex-wife):

The portrait (and autograph) is of astronaut Joe Kerwin.

The launch photo is signed by George Dill, the public relations director for Pan American World Airways at Cape Canaveral during the 1960s.

As part of his duties, Dill met celebrities and dignitaries who came to see the launches, making sure they got to their hotels, launch observation sites or wherever else they needed to be.

I saw that lot on eBay. Interesting that there was a photo inscribed by a president to a moonwalker. I saw that there was also a framed Apollo 14 beta cloth patch. Probably a good chance that it was flown on the mission, considering that it was hung on Mitchell's wall for years. Too bad there was no documentation for that.
