History

Hello, Mr. Davis! – Strength Magazine – February, 1928

Way back in October, 1920, Mr. John W. Davis of Northfield, Vt., obtained from the Milo Bar Bell Co. one of their large size Milo Duplex Bells and a course of instructions. At the time he reported that he had had previous athletic experience in football, baseball, basketball, tennis and cross-country running, and that for the preceding five years he and a friend had been using a 100-pound bar bell outfit. His desire, he wrote, was to improve his strength and physique, and perusal of the correspondence that passed between him and the Milo instructor from time to time discloses that he has succeeded very well.
