    Wally Schirra and Bill Dana (as José Jiménez) Humorous Signed Photo, in Framed Display.

Bill Dana was one of America's most beloved comedians in the 1960s and often portrayed a Mercury astronaut ("the eighth of seven"). He was beloved by the NASA astronauts and would serve on the advisory board of the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation; he also was on the Nominations Committee of the National Aviation Hall of Fame.
