The following images show IBM 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 many 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.  If you are using email, please also state the page title, “IBM”.

    • Hi! Just to make sure that we understand: 49 is NOT “Lou Rhode”, and instead 50 is “Lou Rhodee” (2 ‘e’s)?
      Also, 61 is NOT Tom Santos, and instead 62 is Tommy Santos?

      Finally, for 28, are you sure about the first name and not the last, or unsure about both?

      Thanks for your help on this!
