"Florida Institute of Technology has been fortunate to be a part of the nation's space effort, by contributing to the educa-ton of thousands of space workers at Cape Kennedy, and fortunate to have been associated with men like Gus Grissom. "IT IS with a feeling of deep personal loss that we mourn the death of these astronauts," Dr. Keuper added, "and with pride that we create this memorial to a man who honored us with his friendship and inspired us by his dedication to learning more about our univserse."
