SPACE SUIT DEVELOPMENT PHOTOGRAPHS.
Large collection of approximately 99 color and black and white photographs, mostly 10 x 8 inches, 1960s, on various types of paper, one or two being NASA photographs but the majority International Latex Corporation (ILC), some with inkstamps or credits on verso and a handful with annotations.

A surreal group of images showing tests at ILC's laboratories into the flexibility of various forms of space suit. Since the beginning of the Apollo Program, ILC has been the designer and producer of the space suit pressure garment for NASA. ILC began delivering spacesuits for the Apollo program in 1966, but was forced into competition with Hamilton Standard. In their technical focus, these photographs inadvertently veer from Monty Python at one extreme to contemporary art at the other. Together with a 1961 illustrated report by George P. Durney for ILC on "Parallel Diffuser System and Integration with Universal Combat Clothing System."
