American Continental Weight Lifters’ Association Notes – Strength Magazine – December, 1926

Herman Corner, Tromp Van Diggelen, Herman Saxon! What names these are with which to conjure. In the realm of weights each mime carries a world of sentiment. During the last few days the great South African strong man has been a topic of deep concern with us, caused by the visit to America of that splendid teacher and producer of strong men, Tromp Van Diggelen. Our friend Tromp informs us that Corner is leaving Africa for Europe, and he_ has not decided whether he will come over to America or not.
