Created By The Mercury 7 Astronauts
This L.L. Bean sweater was worn by astronaut Dick Covey during the STS-61 mission and flew in space aboard Endeavour from December 2-13, 1993. "STS-61, Endeavour" is embroidered on the left chest panel. The sweater remained in Covey's personal collection until he donated it to ASF.
The sweater has been paired with two 5 x 7" photos of the official crew portrait and of Endeavour's launch on December 2. The sweater and photos have been mounted and framed using archival methods.
