Miss Baker stuffed toy represents one of the first Space Pioneers to travel into space.  Miss Baker was a  female squirrel monkey who flew aboard a Jupiter AM-18 rocket launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida in 1959.  She was accompanied by Miss Able, a female rhesus macaque.  Both survived the trip very well although Able passed away a few days later while undergoing a procedure to remove electrodes from her body that were used to monitor her while in space.   Miss Baker went on to live 25 years longer in Huntsville Alabama and became quite the celebrity receiving over 250,000 pieces of mail from children all around the world.
