Can anyone ID this photo of baby vs adult proportions?

I pulled it off a set of slideshow images from Stuart Sumida's website, but there's no info on where it's from. I could swear I recognise the guy, and I assume this is from a science book of some kind. It's hard to find such a great demonstration of proportions, and I'd like to find the original work that this is from if possible.. thanks!

I know I've seen that photo in a textbook in the late 90s. I want to say it was the psychology textbook in my college intro class. Unfortunately that's all I can recall.

This doesn't help at all, but a line drawing of that exact same picture was in an early 90's edition of "The What's Happening to My Body? Book: For Boys". Maybe it will help narrow down the timeframe.

Yup, I was going to say that I recognize it from the book baxter_ilion mentions, for girls.

Response by poster: Thanks for the help! Someone on Twitter thought it might be a Time-Life book, so I'll keep up the search.
