My Forty Years’ With The World’s Strongest Men – Strength Magazine – April, 1930

A man’s glory is in his strength, is a saying which has often been repeated. It might better have been “The glory of the human race is in manly strength.” You and I know that the world at large admires a strong man, the man who can do things out of the ordinary, and who by his precepts leads people to a proper understanding and respect for the perfectly developed human body. Some mistaken person has foolishly said something to the effect that familiarity breeds contempt, but I can’t ruthfully state that in my long association with strong men, nothing but the most profound and sincere respect for the man of strength has resulted.
