In 1834, the first U.S. patent for a practical underwater diving suit was issued to Leonard Norcross of Dixfield, Maine (No. X8255).* Calling it a “Diving Armor,” he designed an airtight leather outfit with a brass helmet connected via a rubber hose to an air bellows pump on a boat. http://todayinsci.com/6/6_14.htm   Image source: USPTO
