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

The October show had a touch of the old regime in its setting, with Warren Lincoln Travis, the world’s greatest back and harness lifter, as the main feature of the evening. When one thinks of this splendid old-timer, there is conjured in the vision such famous stars as James W. Kennedy, Chas. G. Jefferson, Louis Cyr, Horace Barre, D. L. Dowd, Gasnier, Joe Coyn and August Johnson. Travis hobnobbed with all these famous old-timers in one way or another, and he is chock-full of stories from their lives.
