Hello all- I recently bought a few vintage signed lithos that are signed "To B.G." and all have some sort of inscription that thanks him for being a "good Booster Builder" etc.
The photos came from a former "cape engineer". Any idea where I might find out who B.G. is?

I believe that one of the Convair engineers that worked at the Cape during Project Mercury was named B.G. MacNabb. He may have been in charge of the Atlas booster used for the orbital flights, although I am not sure of his exact position.

Steve- I did some search engine research after your reply and it is a match.
Thanks again Steve- Jay

Moregenerally, at The Space PArk at Titusville there are the large memorial displays where a large number of the engineers who contributed to these early space programs have their name etched into the marble/granite statues.
