A most interesting biography is that of Geraldine Cobb who was the first woman to be certified as an astronaut. She is featured in the book by Diane Emberline. Her autobiography is--Women Into Space, Jerrie Cobb and Jane Rieker, Prentice-Hall, 1963. (out of print) If you can get your hands on a copy, it should prove most interesting.
