Who Is Joe Nordquest? – Strength Magazine – September, 1924

When writing some of the articles on the subject of muscle-building which have appeared in this magazine in recent months, I have had occasion to refer to the extraordinary strength and development of Joseph Nordquest. This great lifter’s feats of strength are familiar to the older readers of the magazine; but judging from the letters I receive there seems to be a very large number of the present readers to whom Nordquest is merely a name. This may be due to the fact that he retired several years ago from active exhibition and competition.
