Date: March 22, 1952
Creator: Clark, Joe
Description: Photograph of slingshot expert, Johnny Milligan, preparing to fire on balloons held in the mouths of two assistants. Narrative by Junebug Clark: The two assistants being his wife and their next door neighbor. (Spoiler Alert) An earlier photo in the Clark Family Collection shows John bursting a balloon in his wife's mouth. The photo was unsuccessful because the burst balloon was just flying bits of rubber and were unrecognizable. This photo shows how my father, Joe, put a couple spoonfuls of flour in each ballon. Another photo in this collection will show the 'explosive result' and a photo that made it into national newsmagazines. John Milligan, a machinist in Detroit, Michigan who was also the “country’s greatest slingshot expert. “He won local fame by shooting the marks out of playing cards, hitting objects in mid air and bagging game in the field.” Joe took John national with his photos documenting his talent and accuracy. To assure accuracy, he has designed his own precision-built aluminum sling, called the Milligan Special. Additional photos and information can be found in the Clark Family Collection. Photos from this series appeared in eight national publications. Here you can find articles in “Life Magazine . February ...
