Shepard'', ''Gordon Cooper'', ''James Lovell'', ''John Young'', ''Deke Slayton'', ''Edward H. White II'', ''James A. McDivitt'', ''Elliot See'', ''Charles Conrad'', ''Frank Borman'' and ''Thomas P. Stafford''. An inscription by Slayton at the top of the photo reads: ''To Marty with highest personal regards and gratitude for your outstanding accomplishments in supporting our efforts.'' Photograph measures 19.5'' x 9.75'' and with mat, 24'' x 14''. Toning to mat and fading to photo, else near fine.
