The Mat – Strength Magazine – August, 1923

Like most bar-bell lifters, Mr. Harter has a great enthusiasm for-the heroic type of muscular development. In his letters he mentioned that he was a fellow-student of Merchant’s, and he spoke of Merchant with the greatest admiration. The letters which Mr. Harter wrote showed me that he knew how to use his pen, so I commissioned him to write an article about Jack Merchant, and that article appears in this number.
