Mystery Monday - Who is the man in the middle?

I found this 8x10 in one of my grandmother's albums. It is Ward Gillespie (1889-1978) at left and Mary Ada Ross-Gillespie (1894-1987) at right aboard the SS President Roosevelt. Unfortunately, I have no idea who the person in the middle is. I think he must be a politician or actor of the 1960s.

SS President Roosevelt served the American President Lines from 1960 to 1970. President Roosevelt apparently sailed the Pacific Ocean from California. That's about all I know about this photo.
Who am I?


  1. Perhaps this is the retirement party for Dr. Mary Ada Ross from Good Samaritan Hospital. Perhaps the cruise ship was rented for the event? A guess.

  2. His face seemed vaguely familiar so I thought actor or politician, but you might be right.
