At least one of the pictures on the Ohio State University website was taken by National Geographic photographer Dean Conger, who was on "loan" to NASA. It is the one where Glenn is resting as he talks into a tape recorder with his feet up on a "hedge-hog" depth charge launcher as several USS Noa sailors watch.

ASTP trivia: the USS New Orleans was the primary recovery ship. It delivered the ASTP crew and the command module to Pearl Harbor on July 25. But it was the USS Okinawa (the primary recovery ship for Apollo 15) that delivered the ASTP command module from Pearl Harbor to San Diego, arriving on August 20.
