This photo, dated Aug. 4, 1970, is inscribed with regards from John Glenn to Grandview Mayor Joseph Wyman.

Glenn was running for Senate at the time but lost to Howard Metzenbaum in the Democratic primary election.

He ran again and won in 1974, starting his successful political career, which would last until 1999.

Glenn lived in Summit Chase in Grandview for a time. Wyman (aka "Uncle Joe") was a career employee of Columbia Gas but was better known locally as a longtime councilman and mayor of Grandview until his resignation in 1971.

As mayor, Wyman not only was active in local issues and activities but also was a well-known member of the broader Columbus community.

He became an active member of the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission and was part of its executive committee, helped found and became president of the Franklin County Mayors Association, served on the board and became president of the Mayors Association of Ohio and helped found the Central Ohio Law Enforcement Council.
