All beautiful White people....

JFK & Jackie Kennedy May 21, 1963 with 6 of the 7 Mercury astronauts and their wives.

Astronauts are (seated) Gordon Cooper (standing) L-R Wally Shirra, (JFK), Alan Shepard, Scott Carpenter, Gus Grissom & Deke Slayton. John Glenn is not in the photo.

Gordon Cooper (seated) only 8 days earlier had taken a Mercury flight and was at the White House to receive the NASA Distinguished Service Medal from JFK. John Glenn was not at the White House since he had traveled to Japan to help with communications for the Mercury flight of Gordon Cooper, and after the flight John Glenn and his family vacationed in Japan for 12 days.
