I found an article about J Terry in my Dec. 1930 copy of Popular Mechanics (960). The photo looked fake, so I researched the man further. The Popular Science article talked about his exploits as a science jumper of sorts, as in he jumped impossible heights and performed crazy stunts using science to determine if it could be done rather than just great skill as a stuntman. I found this interesting, so I looked him up.

Three articles follow, just as they are scanned in as archived newspaper articles:

He and His ISO Pounds Are Shown Suspended from a Board Ledge on the 48th Floor of Chicago's Civic Opera House. W HEN Norman James Terry recently plunged 213 feet from the new Hudson River Bridge that connects the States of New York and New Jersey, his death was put down as the result of a "courageous, dare-devil stunt." But the true story of his career and the aims that dominated it, reveal Terry as one whu *vasri't really interested in courageous stunts or heroic feats. He regarded himself as a sort of pioneering scientist. True, he did venture into strange new experiments. But because of their sensational na-' ture they were viewed by the public merely as freakish acts of daring. Time after time he risked his life Photos oa Thfs Pase (c) P. * A. DARED NATURE TOO OFTEN This Was the Unba P ,y Ending to the Career .of Norman Terry. The Photo Was Taken as He Was Being Removed from a Launch to an Ambulance After His , Fatal Jump from the Hudson River Bridge. He Died a-Few Minutes Later. front of the court house at Gadogan, Pa. · A few years later he dared the dizzy heights · as a structural iron-worker. Meanwhile he became interested in science. Although he sever went beyond the third grade in school he studied scientific books assiduously. He began to experiment on an invention--a speed control for airplanes. ~He made all -the mechanical drawings himself and it was said the Guggenheim Foundation became interested. At various times he traveled through the country, earning from $300 to 5400 for. scaling buildings or some similar trick. People praised his daring and were awed by his bravery. But they did not know that before these stunts Terry carefully calculated and planned everything to the minutest detail. Nor were they aware that he was experimenting with his own scientific theories. Applause meant less to him than the verification of his ideas concerning gravitation, motion, velocity and balance. That explains, for instance, his dar- and each time he emerged the victor over the laws of nature. The reason, he always insisted, was not because of "luck," but because of careful scientific-, calculations. Nature betrayed him finally when ho Hook that fatal leap from the Hudson Kiver Bridge. As he plunged into space he clung to a 20-foot sail, which hg thought would enable him to fail feet first into the water. Then suddenly he hit an air. pocket, causing him to soraesault and fall into the water on his back, which was broken by the impact. This was the last of a long series of remarkable achievements, outstanding of which were the following: In 1922 Terry tried to swing on a ropfr completely around the Wisconsin capitol dome at Madison, crashed against tha sid* of the building and was. severely injured. /· In 1929 h« pushed a man in a whoalbarrow across a slack ropa 900 feet long and 400 feet in'the air above Atiwata, Ga. '' Walked on a rope SCO feet in the N air strung between two buildings in Chicago's Loop. Hunf from the undercarriage of an airplane going 100 miles an hour and when the plane was within ten feet of tha * ground he dropped, landing in' bast-sliding fashion without being hurt. This perhaps was tha most remarkable af hit feats. Roller-skated along" the ledges of Chicago skyscrapers.

Tha surfboard overturned and Terry hit tit* water so hard h« rolled in its surfaco several ' feet and had his bathing miit torn off. Terry, who was only twenty-four, first became interested in daring achievements when he was:ten years old. He won $50 for putting * flag tope back on its pulley after, climbing a smooth polo eighty feet high in HIS SUPREME EXPERIMENT.

A f t e r watching children s w i n g i n g a r o u n d a pole ~\ public playgrounds h e calculated that it could be done on a larger scale provided he had the help of wind. The movement of the body and the wind currents, he reasoned, could offset eravitationa! pull. Leaping from an adjacent building, while he clung to a rope attached to a Rtatue on the top of the capitol dome, he started his swing. Either gravitation or the lack of wind currents caused him to crash against the building. Four ribs, both ankles and both wrists were broken, but Te.ry managed to ciimb hand-over-hand up the rope to the base of the statue. There he collapsed and was rescued. He tested out several scientific points when he jumped to the ground from the swiftly moving airplane. He had made careful calcu- -£*B!8 lations that involved the theories of velocity, of balance, of gravitational pull and wind resistance. Hanging from the undercarriage of the plane, he waited for it zoom down to ten feet above a Chicago flying field. As he let go, the force of the wind lightened the impact of his drop. It enabled him to strike the ground feet first, his body leaning forward, and then to fall on his stomach and his outstretched hands-much in the same manner as a baseball player sliding forward into home plate. Although he wore only a regu lation football uniform he wasn't even scratched. Hi? balance tests were equally successful. Once he noticed r. baby playing with "a mechanical toy monkey, with a- balancing pole which slid along a string. Terry studied this and then one day astonished Chicago by walking literally over the Loop, on a rope suspended between two skyscrapers. He used n stick, with a heavy ball at the end, to help him balance himself. He exercised the greatest care beforehand in calculating the pro'-able "give" '·SS^jf - *·» '·1+ " ~~ "3c.'.^*'«mi 4_ ' {% of Die 600-foot-long rope. 1* was with the same careful calcula- prepared to make his dive from t h e Hudson River Bridge.

Terry, however, had a more scientific purpose in mind and not a mere stunt. He wanted to prove that by the use of a sail he could balance his body in such a way that he would fall 213 feet and still land feet-first in the water. But what Terry didn't figure out was that Nature if not always consistent in her laws and that while she hates a vacuum she sometimes creates one. Thus, as he came rushing 'down at a speed of eighty miles.an hour, he suddenly hit such a vacuum or air pocket. In an instant he was thrown out of his vertical position and made a somersault. His -body came down in a heap and strv.ck the water with x terrific impact. Fifteen minutes after he was picked up, Terry died.. He had tried to outwit- Nature just once too often. CmjntM, Hit.
