Can I Name the World’s Strongest Man? – Strength Magazine – October, 1925

The article written last month by our erstwhile friend and patron of the iron game, Adolph Nord- quest, brings to a climax a dispute that has been referred to me hundreds of times. Often, when a bunch of us gather together in either my den or office, our conversation will swing around to the question of who is the strongest man in the world. Then, we get into an argument. One favors one man because of a certain impression that man has made, and another will favor some one else for racial reasons.
