Photos from Glenis Austin (nee Wilkerson)

Glenis Wilkerson served as Muchea’s Teletype Operator until shortly after the Friendship 7 mission (i.e. early 1962).

With thanks to Glenis for these photos, and to her daughter, Jenni, for scanning them.

(Other photos from Glenis can be found on various pages of the site, mainly those of external and internal photos.)
