The Silent Witnesses - ED LOVETT

ED LOVETT, Commander, Apollo 18

Edward Stanford Lovett (1933–1973) was born in Hyde Park, New York, to the prominent New York Lovetts, an illustrious family in the political history of the State of New York during the 20th century. After declining to follow both his father and grandfather in elected office, Lovett enlisted in the United States Air Force, eventually flying combat missions in the Korean War.

Recruited by NASA in 1962, Lovett flew two Gemini missions, both as Command Pilot, and one with Barton Cunningham as Pilot. Cunningham and Lovett, along with Al Borden, would later crew the final Apollo lunar mission, Apollo 18. Ed Lovett died in 1973 and is survived by his wife, Joan Joyce Lovett.
