Photos of one of Purdue’s most distinguished alumni went missing from a fraternity early last week but have since been recovered.

Photos of Neil Armstrong, Phi Delta Theta’s most famous brother, were stolen off of the walls of the house by two thieves.

The men of Phi Delta Theta, who are proud to call Armstrong a brother, hung the photos on a wall in the common area of the house.

Surveillance video shows two men snooping around the house, then taking the photos off the wall and walking out with them in hand. One of the photos was signed by Armstrong, an uncommon artifact given that Armstrong rarely signed autographs.

Phi Delta Theta President Brandon Stoller said the photos have already been recovered.

This was not the first time someone has stolen one of the house’s Armstrong photos. The FBI helped track the missing photo to the East Coast the last time it was stolen.
