Max Gene Nohl (1910-1960) was a native of Milwaukee. He graduated from MIT and was the inventor of the first self contained underwater breathing apparatus (SCUBA). He tested it and dove a record braking 420 foot dive to the bottom of Lake Michigan. He made national headlines by diving to salvage a sunken rum running steamship the John Dwight. Along with underwater salvage work he worked in the fields of commercial Sponge diving, sub-marine contracting and underwater motion picture work. Nohl also became a public celebrity appearing in ads for Blatz Beer and Imperial Whiskey. He died tragically in an auto accident in 1960. Irving Fisher (1867-1947) was an American health campaigner, eugenicist and economist. He was also a writer and journalist addressing the problems of World War I the prosperous 1920's and the 1930's depression. Some of his writing works include The Money Illusion (1928), The Theory of Interest and How to Live: Rules for Healthful Living Based on Modern Science. He came up with the Fisher Equation, named in his honor, which distinguishes clearly between real and nominal interest rates. The stock market crash of 1929 cost Fisher much of his academic reputation as well as his personal wealth. Quoted as saying "Stock prices have reached what looks like a permanently high plateau" a few days before the markets crash, afterwards he continued to assure investors that a recovery was right around the corner. His "debt deflation" analysis discredited in his time has made a comeback since the 1980's. Interests in debt deflation have also risen since the recession in the late 2000's. Pencil note (unknown hand) under signature on verso. Left edge frayed. Adhesive residue on front. Toned. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
