History

Carr and Snyder – Strength Magazine – July, 1916

Mr. Carr is one of our champions. In him is planted the desire to compete and to excel. I remember that soon after Carr first started training and could “put up” about 70 pounds, he wrote to me and told me (almost with awe) about seeing a professional Strong Man “put up” 240 pounds with one hand. I suppose that at that time neither Carr nor I thought that the time would come when Carr himself would beat that professional’s mark.
