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

The Boston strong man tourney, that decided the issue and ended the quest of the Boston Post to find who the strongest man in all of the New England States was, ended in another triumph for the A.C.W.L.A. Not only did it carry the red, green, and blue banner over another peak, but it conclusively smashed the theories of those who would have the world believe that the husky lumberjack, stevedore, and steelworker are superior types of men of strength to the trained athletes who build up their bodies with bar bells.
