Hello Fellow Collectors, I collect autographs of artists who design space flight patches for space missions from Mercury to Space Shuttle. Is there any way I can track down these designers to write to them. I pick up names by readind different articles but it is only a few and the most famous is Robert McCall. Thanks for any help possible.Billpok@aol.com

Hi Bill

Welcome to cS. I can give you a few tips. CeceBibby is the lady who painted the first crew emblems onto John Glenns, Scott Carpenters and Wally Schirras spacecraft in 1962. She has her own website and still answers her mail-a wonderful lady.
This site can give you a lot of great info on the patches you mentioned: http://genedorr.com/patches/Intro.html

Another great resource in Spacepatches.info Between those three you should learn what you wanted to know.

BTW I designed the crew patch for Expedition 11 - but you didn't mention ISS flights.

Good Luck!

Tim
