Deke Slayton  (1924-1993)

Donald Kent “Deke” Slayton was one of the original “Mercury Seven” astronauts.  Although he was chosen as one of the original seven astronauts in 1959, he was pulled from the Delta 7 mission of 1962 because of an erratic heart rate, and replaced by Scott Carpenter.   Being an accomplished test pilot, and having flown 56 missions in World War II, and a principal fighter bomber in Vietnam, this news came hard.  Shortly after the news of his heart problem, NASA and the Air Force grounded him.   In 1963 he resigned his Air Force commission and worked for NASA in a civilian capacity as head of astronaut selection.  With this new appointment, he was responsible for choosing the crews for the Gemini and Apollo programs, and also deciding who would be the first person on the moon.

Slayton never gave up his desire to go up into space, and after a long medical program, he was restored to full flight status in 1972.  He was selected as docking module pilot for the Apollo-Soyuz Mission.  On July 17, 1975 the American Apollo and the Soviet Union Soyuz spacecrafts joined up in orbit.  Deke Slayton, Thomas Stafford and Vance Brand conducted crew transfers with cosmonauts, Aleksey A. Leonov and Valeriy Kubasov.  At the age of 51, he was the oldest of his time to fly in space.  

He retired in 1982 from NASA and founded a company called Space Services Inc, in Houston.  He told me along with small commercial payloads, he planned on offering a service of sending up human ashes into space.  During our photo session I asked him to think of his favorite place.  He peered up toward space.

Dr. Benjamin Spock  (1903-1998) s2231

Perhaps Dr. Spock’s first thoughts of child rearing were when his busy parents expected him to help care for his five younger siblings.  He did help raise them and later became one of the foremost experts in the field.

During undergraduate studies at Yale he was a member of the Scroll and Key rowing team that went on to win a gold medal at the 1924 Olympics in Paris.  He then attended medical school at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York where in 1929 he graduated first in his class.  His residency training in pediatrics was at Cornell University, then in psychiatry at Cornell’s Payne Whitney Psychiatric Clinic.   

After serving as a psychiatrist in World War II, he held professorships at three different universities.  Shortly after the war, in 1946, Dr. Spock published his first book, The Common Sense Book of Baby and Child Care, which became a best seller.  According to the Guinness Book of World Records, it outsold all books in the non-fiction category except the Bible.  His second wife, Mary Morgan, helped him revise the book in 1976.  

I met and photographed him in 1987 when he was 84 years old.  He was in amazing physical condition for a man of that age so it didn’t surprise me very much when he gave me his address to send the photo.  He and his wife lived aboard their sailboat at the island of St. Thomas.

William Milliken was born in Traverse City, Michigan in 1922.  His father, James T. Milliken, was mayor of Traverse City and later a State Senator as well as his grandfather who also served as State Senator of Michigan.  William G. Milliken graduated from Traverse City High School and attended Yale University where he was a member of the varsity basketball and track team.  He left Yale to serve in the Army Air Force in World War II.  Milliken flew fifty combat missions over Europe as waist-gunner and had to bail out over Italy.  He was awarded the Purple Heart for heroism and two Bronze Oak Leaf Clusters for bravery in World War II.

After his service, he returned to Yale and graduated in 1946 with a degree in political science.  In 1961 he was elected as a State Senator, like his father and grandfather before him.  From 1965 to 1969 he served as lieutenant governor under George Romney, and became governor when George Romney left office to serve in Richard Nixon’s cabinet.  Milliken went on to become the longest-serving Michigan Governor in history.  During his 14 years as governor serving as a moderate republican, he was chairman of The National Governor’s Association, and led in the formation of the Council of Great Lakes Governors.

After retiring from the governorship, Milliken was chairman of the Great Lakes Commission in Chicago, a Chrysler board member, a Ford Foundation board member, and an active member of the Police Foundation in Washington DC.  He also received honorary college degrees from virtually all Michigan universities.  He lives in Traverse City with his wife.

Larry Linville   (1939-2000)

Larry Linville was born in Ojai, California and graduated from high school in Sacramento.  He then went to the University of Colorado where a desire to  fly jets led him to a major in engineering.  He told me he also had a desire to act and there were many more girls enrolled in drama than engineering.  He got out of engineering and joined a civic group in Boulder, Colorado.  In 1959 he won a scholarship to the prestigious Royal Academy of Arts in London.   After returning to the United States, he was kept busy, with stage work and made his debut on Broadway in Eugene O’Neill’s,  “More Stately Mansions”, staring Ingrid Bergman.

On the small screen Linville was also kept busy with roles on “Judd for the Defense”, “Mission Impossible”, and “Bonanza”, but his role on “Room 222” is what got the attention of producer, Gene Reynolds who cast him as Major Frank Burns on “MASH”.  After five very successful seasons on the award winning series, Larry decided he had accomplished all he could with the character, and did not renew his contract.  He appeared in numerous TV series and films after his famous role.

I met and photographed him in 1988 while he was on a college speaking tour.  He wasn’t at all like Major Frank Burns, but did enjoy the attention he received at a bar after his talk to a packed house.  I believe smoking finally got the best of him when he died from complications of pneumonia after surgery was performed to remove cancerous lung tissue.

Reverend Ralph David Abernathy  (1926-1990)

When Ralph Abernathy walked into the room where I was set up to photograph him, he asked, “Are you from NBC, ABC or CBS?”  I said I was an independent, and he answered, “I like independence.”   Our relaxed portrait session was in 1985 during one of his speaking tours.

Mr. Abernathy was born in Linden, Alabama in 1926 and graduated from Alabama State University in 1950.  A year later he earned his M. A. in sociology from Atlanta University and became a pastor of the First Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama.
While living in Montgomery he formed a close relationship with Martin Luther King Jr.

In 1955 when Rosa Parks refused to move to the back of the bus, Abernathy and King organized the bus boycott, which after a year resulted in a ruling by the United States Supreme Court that segregation on buses was unconstitutional.  Abernathy was Mr. King’s right hand man in the Southern Christian Leadership, with the title of Secretary-Treasurer.  The two worked very closely together until Mr. King’s untimely death in 1968, where they shared a room together the night before the leader was slain.

After King’s death, Rev. Abernathy assumed the role of president of the SCLC, but never got the support his successor had.  Reverend Abernathy continued to work for civil rights and was vice president of the American Freedom Coalition until his death in 1990.

Sir Harold Wilson  (1916-1995) w2218

Harold Wilson first entered Parliament in 1945, and as a member of the labour party became prime minister in 1964.  He served until 1970, when he was unexpectedly
defeated, but was elected again in 1974.  In 1976 he surprised many by resigning as
prime minister, but was knighted the same year, and retained his seat in  Commons
until he was created a life peer in 1983.  Sir Harold Wilson was the longest searving
Labour prime minister.  He passed away in 1995.

While I was photographing him we talked about the famous portrait of Winston Churchill taken by Yousuf Karsh.  Mr. Wilson told me Churchill was preoccupied with the war and Karsh was not having any luck keeping his attention during the portrait session.  With his 8x10 view camera ready, Karsh snatched the cigar from the Englishman’s mouth
and as the prime minister glared in disbelief, the world’s most famous photograph was taken.  Harold Wilson told me it was Churchill’s favorite photograph of himself and he told Karsh he was impressed that the photographer was able to make a roaring lion sit still.  Karsh entitled the photo, Roaring Lion.  Mr. Wilson also told me that a portrait was painted of every prime minister and Winston Churchill  hated his so much that he had one of the gardeners secretly wrap up and bury his oil painting somewhere in the gardens of Number 10 Downing Street.
