Richard Green '49 donates aerospace memorabilia to the
Richard Green '49 spent his entire career working for the
National Science Foundation, NASA and several other aerospace
agencies. Over the years he acquired a collection of memorabilia
from the space programs that he recently donated to the College.
Jim Hogan, director of library services, spoke extensively
to Green: "I reassured him that donating the collection to
the College would ensure that it remain intact, housed in
a nice environment, and that it would be used periodically
for exhibitions. It is just genuinely interesting stuff for
any American having lived in the latter half of the 20th
century." The collection includes a flag that was carried
aboard Apollo 17, an emblem of the Apollo 12 lunar surface
experiments packet, photos of the lunar surface taken in
the process of mapping the entire lunar surface, and maps
the astronauts used to navigate the surface of the moon.
Hogan notes that while the photos are copies, "like anything
else in life, copies have a way of disappearing. That is
why we maintain an archival copy of these things. Years from
now, many of these photos will have disappeared, and Holy
Cross may be one of the few places to still have them in

the following from Tom Moriarty:
If anyone had been wandering around Ellis Island in New
York Harbor one day last week (i.e., Friday, Nov. 19), he
would have run into three members of the Class of '62 checking
the place out. The three former roommates get together in
the fall of the year for lunch, usually at some out-of-the-way
place in Connecticut, like Essex. However, this year, Bob
Swords, Charlie Tomaselli and Tom Moriarty decided to do
something educational-take a trip to Ellis Island to see
the restored immigration facility in New York Harbor. So,
Moriarty got on the Amtrak train in Springfield at 5:30 a.m.,
Swords got on the same train in Hartford at 6:10 a.m., and
they arrived in New York at 8:50 a.m. at Grand Central Station,
after changing to Metro North in Stamford. They picked up
Tomaselli at his office at 49th and Third Avenue and were
off to the ferry. The three spent about four hours on the
island, touring the exhibits and looking at the names on
the wall of honor in the courtyard. The weather was great-68
degrees and sunny. The building that has been restored is
well-done and well-maintained. It was a very instructive
trip and well worth the effort. Tom recommends it to anyone
whose relatives came through there on their journey to the
United States of America. The day was capped off with a drink
at Placido Domingo's Restaurant on 50th Street and then a
walk back to Grand Central Station, where the participants
took their respective trains back home.
