Northwestern sold full sets, 1 through 15, with odd and even numbers, (unlike today where the even numbers have largely disappeared) for years. The 15 wood topped out at 36 degrees and 37.5 inches in length. The catalog said it was "for possible sand use." There was only 1.5 degrees between the higher lofted woods.
I'd have to believe the Austads in the OP were produced by Northwestern. Ram produced most of Austad's clubs in the 1970s, but I don't recall ever seeing any Ram branded high lofted woods.
The Stan Thompson laminated Ginty was available 1 through 15, odd and even, in the later years of its existence. Their 15 wood topped out at 46 degrees and 40 inches in length. Oddly enough, all the woods from 8 through 15 were 40 inches in length, with two degrees between each.
Wow -- thanks! It's amazing to find out about some of the wild detours golf equipment development has taken over the years.

You can still buy the Louisville Niblick range all the way up to 15 (2,3,4,5,7,9,11,13,15).
They say that the 5-wood through 15-wood replaces your 3-iron through 8-iron.(5-Wood is 21 degrees, 7-Wood is 24 degrees, 9-Wood is 27 degrees, 11-Wood is 30 degrees, 13-Wood is 33 degrees and 15-Wood is 36 degrees).
