Was it Schirra then described in one of the books as being in his favourite New York bar ready to start on a drink when CBS phoned the owner and told him to take the drink out of Wally's hand and put him in a cab over to the studio ?

Wally Shirra

Some years ago, I was at a fund raiser for a memorial to the late M/Gen Marion Carl, USMC, who had lived in my home town in Oregon. I had taken an autographed photo signed by Carl to be auctioned off with many other items.I got there early and was approached by a gentleman who introduced himself as Wally Shirra. We had a long and pleasant chat about Marion Carl before the crowds showed up and he moved on. Later, I acquired a signed copy of his autobiography.
