Title: Chuck Parkman Missile Silo

Dates: 1964-1966

Collection Number: 2009-P-029

Quantity: 32 images

Abstract: Digital scans of black and white photographs of Chuck Parkman and others constructing missile silos K, L, M, N, and O. Most of the photographs have Mr. Parkman's identifying system written on the left side of the photograph. His classification follows: L-16 – steel beams with primer cord to simulate one third the strength of a bomb blast to see what damage it would do to a missile; O-24 to 45 – dug twenty seven feet down, built capsule, poured outer wall where they put computers – the round part is the generator for firing a missile; N-33 - cap for top – also excavated a pit twenty seven feet deep here; O-46 – liner they put in when the hole was too wet to auger lower the cylinder (the inside of the silo); L-16 – cherry picker putting pump in hole to pump water out of hole; O-43 – rain and snow caved site in; and O-46 silo – dug down until they found shale.
