GEMINI 3 MISSION EMBLEM.
Circular cloth crew emblem, approximately 3½ inches, with the full names of astronauts Grissom and Young surrounding a Gemini spacecraft floating on water, mounted on a Typed Letter Signed by Mrs. Betty Grissom.
Betty Grissom's letter reads in part: "Gus had lost his Mercury capsule after a short circuit blew the hatch. 'Molly Brown,' the unsinkable heroine from the Broadway musical, seemed the best choice by my husband for the name of his Gemini spacecraft. NASA never officially named Gemini 3 'Molly Brown,' but the name was enthusiastically used by the press during coverage of the March 23, 1965 flight."
