Are any pictures of Guenter Wendt in the white room for STS-1 or others early space shuttle missions?

Here he is with STS-1 backup astronauts Joe Engle and Richard Truly in June 1979, with Enterprise on Pad 39A.

Wendt was head of flight crew safety at the time of the Space Shuttle program, and is unlikely to have been on any pad closeout crews. He served on the investigation board for the Challenger accident.
