These pictures of NASA’s Rockwell contractors were taken by Fred Cordia between 1968 and 1972.  Rockwell worked on the S-II stage of the Saturn V rocket.  Unlike the other LVO contractors listed on this website, Rockwell did not work on ASTP, so the photographs are different and come from a slightly earlier time.

Following each picture is a list of the people in the photos.  You will note some of the individuals have not been identified.

If you know the name of any of the people in the pictures, 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, first specify the picture (e.g., Rockwell #1), then specify both row and identifying information before specifying the name.  For instance, in the middle row, the man close to the left with the yellow shirt would be “Rockwell #1, Kneeling/Squatting, Man with yellow shirt and dark tie, is Joe Blow.”

This picture and the following picture (Rockwell #2) appear to have been taken on the same day (same wardrobe options), but in two different locations and formations.

Note:  The second person in on the front row above (to the left of the man with the yellow shirt) appears to be kneeling, but was classified below as part of the “Sitting” row below because of his location.

  1. I believe my dad, Chuck Beckner, is in the 2nd picture kneeling behind the guy in the red shirt. I’d know those ears anywhere. He is currently living in Noblesville, Indiana.

  2. Pretty busy now. I was not in any of these because some of us had to stay on station and get the work done. Chuck Beckner (now living in Ohio) is on the right end, back row. Wilson Behney is the third one from the left standing and Bob Thatcher is the sixth from the left in the first photo.
