ORIGINALLY FROM THE COLLECTION OF APOLLO 9 COMMANDER JAMES A. MCDIVITT
Accompanied by two color photographs of Schweickart during his EVA, and a letter of authenticity from James McDivitt with a picture of the Commander holding the checklist, which states: "I certify that this launch abort checklist was flown on Apollo 9 on her flight in March 1969. It is from my personal collection."
The present checklist was stored in Lunar Module Pilot Rusty Schweickart's spacesuit pressure garment assembly pocket on his right leg throughout the duration of the Apollo 9 mission, including his hour and seven minute-long EVA. It was meant to function as a crisis management guide, which would assist the astronauts in the event of a problem during launch or cancellation of the mission.
The front cover originally read "LMP Checklist," but it appears to have been re-purposed prior to launch, with "LMP" scratched out, and "Launch abort / Emergency" written in pen.
