Contrary to what most believe, Armstrong had a good, but very dry, sense of humor. He would crack the occasional joke in class, but I can't remember ever seeing/hearing him laugh out loud. He had a noticeable smirk, however.
You knew him personally ? Went to class with him? Wow!!

No, he was one of my aerospace engineering professors at Cincinnati. He taught flight mechanics and flight testing, and some other courses I didn't take.
