The following images show Chrysler contractors at KSC at a “Thank You” ceremony after the ASTP launch.  Although there is a small amount of overlap between the two pictures (the right side of the top picture overlaps with the left side of the bottom picture), each person has been numbered once and only once.  Following the picture is a list of the numbers with the corresponding individual’s name.  You will note a couple of the individuals have not been identified.

If you know the name of any of the people in the picture, please contact us, either by email (see the floating tab on the left side of the page) or by the online comments (see the bottom of the page).   When identifying an individual, specify the number before specifying the name.  For instance, in the middle-ish row, the man with the mustache directly above #21 would be “No. 53, Joe Blow.” If you are using email, please also state the page title, “Chrysler”.

Chrysler — 2 Comments

  1. The man numbered 80 is my father Jack Ely Teel. He worked with Chrysler for about 7 or 8 years and over 40 at the Cape overall. He passed in 2005. A great father he was.

  2. I was not present for photo but worked for CCSD from 65-68 as a technician at QLDS complex 34 & 37. I enjoyed looking at the photo and some of my old friends.
