A handful of Farrah Fawcett‘s personal items, including the red swimsuit from her iconic 1976 poster, will now be housed at Smithsonian‘s National Museum of American History.

In a special ceremony on Tuesday (February 2), the late actress’s birthday, actor Ryan O’Neal and Farrah‘s nephew, Greg Walls, donated the swimsuit along with the original copy of the poster, her personal Charlie’s Angels script book, an original 1977 Farrah Fawcett doll, and a “Farrah Phenomenon” 1976 edition of TV Guide.

“It’s an honor to see Farrah’s famous red bathing suit donated to the Smithsonian Institution, celebrating her place in pop culture,” said Ryan. “The swimsuit is exactly where it belongs, and I know Farrah is looking down on us today flashing that big smile that we all loved.”

Also included in the collection, which goes on display later this summer in the museum’s Division of Culture and the Arts: a Charlie’s Angels 1976 edition of Time, a “Farrah‘s Glamour Center” hairstyling doll, and a Farrah Fawcett swimsuit jigsaw puzzle.

Melissa Joan Hart Apologizes To Farrah Fawcett

Melissa Joan Hart has written an apology to cancer-stricken Farrah Fawcett after the NY Post overheard the 33-year-old actress saying that she hoped Farrah wouldn’t die so her bikini-clad cover would be published by People magazine.

The Sabrina the Teenage Witch star writes, “It has come to my attention that something I said has been completely misconstrued in the press. I was merely explaining what I had read about how the cover of People magazine was chosen from an article last week I read in the Times. I truly hope that Farrah and her family know I wish them the best at this time in her life. And that I would never be so selfish to disrespect anyone, let alone someone I admire greatly.”

Melissa continues, “Last week was an intense one for me in many regards. Not only for all the reasons that have been publicized for you like the magazine cover and the opening of our new shop. But mainly because my mother was admitted into the hospital and underwent an intense 8 hour surgery on a brain tumor. All of my 6 siblings and I gathered at my house and the hospital for the entire week to be strong for each other. She is out of the woods and on her way to recovery, luckily she is a good healer and has 7 children to lend a hand in times like these. Prayer is a big part of my life and it was very crucial last week for my mommy. I ask that you keep her in your thoughts and prayers as she fights her way to a full and wonderful recovery. I love you Mommy!!!”
