Myra, to whom these are inscribed, was the daughter of Bill Taub. As NASA's senior photographer, Taub was away from home for as many as 150 days a year, travelling to training sessions, shuttle launches, and recovery sites. Glenn's inscription warmly captures the grueling nature of Taub's schedule, and also the high regard in which NASA's astronauts held him.
