Notes:

The scale markings ("Idle, "Reheat Arm" & "Combat") suggest this is a fighter aircraft throttle control of some sort. The significance of the -29° to +15° scale is unknown. The given height is with the lever upright. At present we have been unable to discover more about this item or why it came to Rochester.
