    Clifton C. Williams, Jr. (1932-1967) Color Photo Signed "To Buzzy with/ best wishes--/ C Williams". Chosen by NASA in the third group of astronauts in October 1963, Williams served on the backup crew for Gemini 10 and had been assigned to the back-up crew for Apollo 9. The standard crew rotation system would most likely have led to his assignment as lunar module pilot for Apollo 12. He perished in a T-38 crash while flying from the cape to Mobile, Alabama in 1967 to visit his father who was dying of cancer. The Apollo 12 mission patch has four stars on it instead of three, as a tribute to his memory. The photo is an 8" x 10" NASA-issued lithographed pose in a business suit with a rocket model. From the Byron "Buzzy" George Collection.
