Holdings Highlight! RG 167: Submissions to the National Inventors Council

Every so often, I come across items in our holdings which are so delightfully bizarre that they have to be shared.  The drawings below come from RG 167: Submissions to the Inventor’s Council.  This group was founded in 1940 as part of the Department of Commerce’s Office of Technical Services.  The intention was that this organization would examine invention ideas that might aid in the war effort.

This group of drawings were all done by inventor WalterTezak.
