Default Who Dat?

Folks,

The July/August Sport Rocketry has an article on the race between Estes and Centuri to release the first Saturn V kit. I hope you read it! There are lots of pretty cool period pictures from the Stine Collection and NARAM 10.

The article has a photo (https://www.flickr.com/photos/stine...57707063068775/ which shows L-R:
Jim Kukowski (floor), Dr. Ellsworth Beech, Les Butterworth, G. Harry Stine (behind rocket), Unknown, Vern Estes, Lee Piester, Irv Wait. Jim Barrowman and wife Judy are facing the stage in image center. Photo was taken in the Wallops Island Auditorium.

Any suggestions on who the "Unknown" guy might be? Glenn Pearson thinks it might be Gerry Gregorek.

Thanks!

I've only had time to thumb through while walking in from the mailbox. This issue looks like it will be one of the best in a good while, especially for us YORF types.

The "Saturn Rising" article was fun to write, although I expect a few of my history-wise friends on here will have an addition or correction to add.
I sure wish the fate of the Centuri Saturn V prototype and launch tower was known. That model knocked my socks off in August of 1969 when I pulled my first Centuri catalog out of its envelope.
