MERCURY ORBIT CHART MOC-3
The following note accompanies this map and is signed by Walter: "This chart was given to me September 20, 1995 by Dr. John E. Dornbach of Seabrook, Texas. This is one of the two charts carried by Col. John H. Glenn on the first U.S. manned orbital flight in the Project Mercury Gemini capsule Friendship 7, February 20, 1962. The three-orbit flight covered approximately 130,000 km. in 4 hours, 55 minutes. Dr. Dornbach was the person responsible for producing this chart for Aeronautical Chart and Information Center at that time. Later he was transferred to N.A.S.A. to produce the Lunar lander maps and ultimately became the Director of the Earth Resources branch at NASA. John Dornbach was a classmate of mine in the Geography Graduate School at Clark University, Worcester, Mass. in 1950-52. Walter K. Morrison."
