Kearney works for NASA circa:1964-1968
NASA's Ames Research Center, Mountain View, California
Only a few years out of the US Navy as a deck hand and now working in the Graphics and Exhibits Department for world famous NASA as a technical illustrator! Just because I could draw! My first job out of the Navy was working in retail at Valley Fair,San Jose, CA. Then my brother Phil, helped me get into a "job-shop" as a technical illustrator. That lead to the NASA job. This was before the moon landing.
