Lt. Frederick Lundahl, USAF, Assistant Director of Information at the Institute of Technology, Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio and USPA B-6893, submitted this photograph of Leslie Irvin performing a freefall parachute jump. The inscription on the old photograph said that it was a picture of "Mr. Lesley Irvin engaging in one of his parachuting experiments." The photo was taken in early 1919, in Dayton, Ohio and could well be a photo of Mr. Irvin's first freefall jump.
