Designed insignia for astronauts Al Stevens, of Tustin, California, a North American Rockwell employee, designed the insignia patch worn by the astronauts Wally Schirra, Walt Cunningham, and Donn Elsele, members of the crew for the first Apollo mission, Stevens is the son-in-law of General manager Mrs. Mae Edge of Humboldt and the husband of the former Miss Marjorie Edge, a 1938 graduate of the Humboldt High School. His insignia patch for the earth-orbiting shot has an Apollo ship circling the earth with North and South America below and the Roman numeral VH in the Pacific Ocean. The outside border reads: "Schirra-Eisele-Cunningham." The astronauts worked with Stevens on the design. Stevens, 53, lives at 12760 Barett Lane, Tustin, California. Mrs. Stevens is secretary to the Santa Ana, California, city manager. Their daughter, Sandra, is about to receive her master's degree from Otis Art Institute, Los Angeles. Designing astronauts' patches and insignia is a change of pace for Stevens. His usual work is graphic design. He usually designs brochures for public relations. Stevens has worked for about 12 years with North American Rockwell of Downey, California, builder of the Apollo spacecraft. He also had designed an insignia patch for the earlier ill- fated Apollo crew, Virgil Gris- som, Ed White, and Roger Chaffee. The three men died in a flash fire inside the space capsule during ground tests late In January, 1967. Another patch of Stevens' also has been tentatively accepted for some later Apollo shot.
