Backstage Photo

I really liked this backstage photo, but it didn't make it into the yearbook. You can see Michelle Knowlden busily checking her makeup in a mirror while someone else (what was his name?) is checking the photographer in another.

Michelle was my debate opponent during my Summer School from Hell, 1969, when my parents made me take Speech and Typing classes -- four hours of misery every morning for four weeks. In our debate in speech class, I was against continuing the U. S. manned space program after conclusion of the Apollo program, and Michelle was for it. Somewhat ironically, we both ended up working on the Space Shuttle program (although only briefly in my case).
Michelle became an engineer and mystery writer.

The good part of summer 1969 was that I got my first camera, a Pentax Spotmatic, which I used to take these pictures.
