Pages of History: Spaceman and local lads

Pages of History for September of 1965 from the Del Norte Triplicate.

When the astronauts returned to earth after a 3,338,200 mile jaunt, a Crescent City lad, Charles Rutherford, was waiting aboard the aircraft carrier Lake Champlain to meet them.

Rutherford, 19, is the son of Mr. and Mrs. James Rutherford of Crescent City. He is serving aboard the ship where spacemen Gordon Cooper, Jr. and Charles Conrad, Jr. were landed Sunday morning, working as an electrician’s mate.
