Dyer Brainerd Holmes, who was NASA’s first director of manned space flight in the early 1960s, died Jan. 11 in Memphis at age 91.

Holmes was instrumental in developing the plan that sent the first U.S. astronauts to the moon.

He appeared on the cover of the 10 August 1962 issue of Time magazine. (For younger members of collectSPACE, that was a very big thing way back when.)
