While waiting to hear about NASA credentials for Apollo 11, I prepared to leave#Apollo11Eyewitness Post #10
Ann Arbor in 1969 to return
to my home near
for a summer job at a men’s clothing store. This photo is how I looked working
at the Michigan Daily-- I knew I would have to get a haircut and get cleaned up
for my Chicago Michigan Ave.
job. While at the , I frequently
passed the corner of U.
of Michigan University
Avenue which had been named in 1965 in honor of
Jim McDivitt and Ed White. They had received their bachelor (McDivitt) and master (White) degrees in 1959 from the University
‘s famed aeronautical engineering department. The corner, near the Engineering
Arch, was later turned into a plaza, shown here. Also, the Apollo 15 crew all
attended U of M for part of their educations. Go Blue!
