In the HJ,I've already mentioned performances by Brumel and Yashchenko; Thomas had a whole bunch in 1959 and 1960 when his injured foot ( elevator accident ) dashed his outdoor 1959 season.
In PV Uelses had 2 16 footers before he could get outdoors.
There were then a whole bunch of indoor wr's after that for a year or so, topped by Nikula's big night when he got up to about 16' 8+".
That's all my memory can quickly dredge up.
