John Y. Smith – Strength Magazine – September, 1920

Here is a wonder for you! A man 50 years old, who, after years of retirement from active athletics, appears at an athletic club, makes wonderful records in lifting, and thereby wins a bet made years before. Smith’s name may be new to my younger readers, but most of the Physical Culture veterans will probably recall Smith’s record-making efforts of a dozen years ago.
