Behind the Scenes

In addition to the formal, official photographs, Schirra kept a number of more personal photos that played up his light-hearted, prank-playing personality.

Thousands of photos and documents were created during the years Schirra was at NASA, and it is very interesting to see which items he chose to keep, many of which are unique.
