A wonderful little autograph artifact from perhaps the most compelling missionary story in the West during the second half of the 20th century. Among the five young men martyred by the Auca of Ecuador was Peter Fleming. He and his wife Olive were newlyweds when the tragedy occurred.
Very early autograph, while still Olive Fleming, so probably organic to the 1950's. She later remarried.
