Dot is actually in this photo, but all you can see is one eye. She's in the center column, second "hat" from the left.

Frank
Not sure where this is. The logical place would be Purdue University, where Frank was taking ASTP classes from 6/43 until 6/44. However, I can't locate any building now on the campus that resembles the one in the background.
