Default Need some SCUBA history.

For school I have to create a timeline all about SCUBA. I have pretty much everything I need but am wondering if anyone knows a cool fact or tidbit about SCUBA that I may not have come across the rest of the web. ANY facts would be great!

Thanks

The old man of scuba is Bill Tant! He started Southern Skin Diver Supply in birmingham in the early 60's I certified with him in 1970. He is still alive and lives in Panama City. A great guy, I was 13 yrs. old when I cert. Bill wrote at least one book , which I have, about his start and adventures. You may can look up something on him!

The link is one of the best reference tools available for divers. It is now electronic and <U>searchable</U>. Chapter one ofvolume onehas a tremendous amount of history on all significant diving methods and milestones. Don't be suprised if you see Sealarks picture in one of the volumes.

Good luck on your project!

Come on Mike you should know todays Diving manual is too new to have my picture. I was in the one that was one inch thick with air and gas in the same manual. I graduated in 1966. :doh
