A campus plaza was named for McDivitt and White in 1965 to honor their accomplishments on the Gemini IV spacewalk. (At the time of its dedication, the plaza was near the engineering program's facilities, but the College of Engineering has since been moved. The campus plaza honoring them remains.) Two NASA spaceflights have been crewed entirely by University of Michigan degree-holders: Gemini IV by James McDivitt and Edward White in 1965 and Apollo 15 by Alfred Worden, David Scott and James Irwin (honorary degree) in 1971. The Apollo 15 astronauts left a 45-word plaque on the moon establishing its own chapter of the University of Michigan Alumni Association.[1]
