Can anyone identify the gentleman in the space suit?
The above picture is from "Tom Corbett, Space Cadet". According to the Ultimate Science Fiction Web Site, "the series only lasted three months at CBS -- probably due to budgetary concerns or disappointing sales of the now-collectable merchandise -- and moved to a couple of years at ABC. NBC merely aired kinescopes of episodes as a summer replacement for Victor Borge...Although technically a childrens' show, this was a high-water mark in television science fiction, and a significant precursor to Star Trek."
This sure looks like the same uniform to me . If you look closely at the KVOO picture, you can see the back of what appears to be one of those funny-looking dickies.
