SPACE SUIT DEVELOPMENT PHOTOGRAPHS.
Collection of 70 photographs (67 black and white, 3 color), mostly 10 by 8 inches, 1960s, on various types of paper, a few being NASA photographs, but the majority International Latex Corporation (ILC), some with inkstamps or credits on verso and a handful with annotations.
Provenance: George P. Durney (1923-98), the Apollo suit project manager, often referred to as the "Father of the Space Suit."

A fascinating 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 a lead designer and producer of space suit pressure garments 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.
