Jack Swigert (19311982) was a NASA astronaut who, as a last-minute replacement for Ken Mattingly (who had been exposed to German measles), was one of three crew members on the near-disastrous Apollo 13 mission. After becoming embroiled in the controversy surrounding souvenirs carried aboard the Apollo 15 mission, Swigert embarked on a political career running unsuccessfully for a Senate seat in 1978. He finally won a seat in the House of Representatives in 1982 but died before taking office. EARLY AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED BY JACK SWIGERT TO ACTRESS DOLORES HART, BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN SWIGERTS LOVER. Autograph letter signed by Jack Swigert to actress Dolores Hart, best-known for giving Elvis Presley his first on-screen kiss in the 1957 film. Swigert shared a long two year correspondence with Hart and it is believed the two shared a close and intimate relationship together. THE HAUNTING QUESTION OF HOW MANY PEOPLE READ THIS BEFORE-AND AND IF-IT EVER GETS TO YOU, WRITING UNDER THESE CIRCUMSTANCES DOES PUT ONE UNDER A BIT OF A HANDICAP. The letter reads in part: With nothing but a studio address and the haunting question of how many people read this before-and if-it ever gets to you, writing under these circumstances does put one under a bit of a handicap. In such a situation, how would you write an introductory type of letter-especially if you were trying to keep from being grouped into the fan category. Well, being a go-for-broke type-and to keep you from being totally in the dark as to who wields the pen on this end: average looking son of a Denver doctor, engineer but studying for an MBA at nite, [sic] interests besides flying are many sports, bridge, good music and some stimulating correspondence from someone who seems to have a clear head and some good thoughts.

Perhaps its part of the test pilot that the untried or seemingly bold comes natural. But how many opportunities lost and little progress if we let the chances slip by. Now all that remains is to see if there is a bit of the test pilot in you too! At the time of writing this letter, Swigert was working as an engineering test pilot for Pratt & Whitney.

He applied to NASA for astronaut selection in 1962 and 1963, but was rejected both times. It was not until 1966 that he was successful, being selected for NASA Astronaut Group 5.
