David Frohman, President of Peachstate Historical Consulting, Inc., honored by his selection as the official cataloger and appraiser of "The Charles Conrad, Jr. Space Collection"
July 19, 1999
David Frohman, President of Peachstate Historical Consulting, Inc., stated that he was honored to have been selected by the widow of astronaut and Apollo 12 Moonwalker Charles Conrad, Jr. to catalog and appraise Conrad's personal space collection. Conrad was one of the world's most famous astronauts, having flown on Gemini 5 and 11, walked on the Moon during Apollo 12, and served as commander of the first manned American "Skylab" mission.
"While I am humbled by my selection as the cataloger and appraiser of the personal space collection of my friend Pete Conrad, I am also overwhelmed by his sudden and tragic death", Frohman said. "It was only a few weeks ago that I was having dinner with Pete, Nancy, and indeed the rest of the Apollo 12 crew, and suddenly he is gone from our lives. Charles "Pete" Conrad was a very special influence in my life, and truly a "one of a kind" human being. He will be sorely missed!"
