    Finding Aid for the Paul Cicci Collection, 1962-2004 (#2019-2006)
    (UHCL Archives staff, 2019) Cicci, Paul
    Paul Cicci was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. As a youth he became interested in aviation and the NASA space program. He started building model airplanes in the late 1950s-early 1960s, when he got the idea to write to the NASA astronauts for the Gemini Program. After receiving a letter back from John Glenn, Cicci began writing to all of the astronauts of the Gemini and Apollo Programs, along with other NASA luminaries. He also began collecting astronaut photographs, magazines, and newspapers between 1962 and 2004. Cicci focused on collecting for early Apollo astronauts’ photographs with signatures, signed letters, magazines, and newspapers.
