Life Magazine Cover of John Glenn, vintage 1962
Astronaut John Glenn on the cover of Life magazine, March 2, 1962. He orbited the Earth 3 times and ate applesauce from a toothpaste type tube. NASA invited me to attend his second launch on the space shuttle! What a great experience! Regret I've never met him.
Today 2-20 in 1962 - America’s first space hero, John Glenn, made space history. Glenn orbited the world three times in 4 hours, 55 minutes. “Godspeed, John Glenn. You’re cleared for orbit.”
February 2, 1962: John Glenn If there is one characteristic that defines Ralph Morse's iconic portrait of astronaut John Glenn, it's the picture's wonderful, stirring simplicity. Here, on the very cusp of becoming a legend, a "brave man" (as LIFE unapologetically labeled him) stares, unblinking, into the camera.The Space Race is being run -- or rather, flown -- in deadly earnest. The Soviet Union has, thus far, been outpacing America by almost every measure. But when a straight-talking, clean-living, blue-eyed, all-American hero blasted off into space in the spring of 1962, circling the Earth three times on a five-hour flight, it was clear that, finally, the U.S. was a match for its superpower rival. This LIFE cover, appearing three weeks before Glenn's historic flight, was the first serious inkling that in John Glenn and the rest of the young, eager, courageous NASA astronauts, America was ready to explore the final frontier.

Sharing Memories. Cold War Air Raid practice Sirens. DUCK and COVER!!
12:00 noon on Mondays, I remember this! Nuclear air raid drills were part of everyday life at school up through the mid 60's. Children were taught to "duck and cover" under their desks or in the hallways.
I remember doing the "Duck and Cover" drill in elementary school every last Friday of the month. We did this to prepare for possible air attacks during the cold war in the 1960s and early 1970s in California. We lived close to two AFBs with another few within an hour of us. Fun times!

althistories: Amidst the remembrances on the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, let us take a moment to also remember Bayard Rustin (left), the chief organizer of the march and one of the great strategists of the civil rights movement. Rustin was also an out gay man, who faced constant criticism, threats, and arrests from both white adversaries and black peers. The excellent documentary Brother Outsider, about Rustin, is streaming on Netflix now.
On the left is Bayard Rustin, Deputy Director, and the right is Cleveland Robinson, Chairman of Administrative Committee. Rustin was the chief organizer of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. An openly gay man who was active in civil rights, gay rights and the nonviolence movements, his FBI file was over 10,000 pages. He was also a key adviser to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The March on Washington in 1963 was an important part of the rapidly-expanding Civil Rights Movement. It also marked the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation by Abraham Lincoln.
