Buckbee began his NASA career in 1959 when America’s first Mercury astronauts were selected. He attended the launches of Alan Shepard and John Glenn and was present when the Apollo astronauts lifted-off for the moon landings. He continues to be associated with America’s space program. Ed has met and worked with all the astronauts who flew the early Mercury and Gemini space missions and Apollo moon walkers. In 1970, he was selected by Von Braun to be the first director of the U.S. Space & Rocket Center.

I've attended a talk by Buckbee, and he does such a great job of depicting the real personalities of the astronauts. I imagine this will be well worth checking out.
