Gregory Paradise: The Original Pocket Hercules – Iron Game History – May 2008

My venture into the land of Paradise, (Nashua, New Hampshire) in September 1941 to visit a man who was possibly, or even probably, the strongest man on record, pound-for-pound, was an occasion that stands out as the epitome in a lifetime of wonderful memories of strongmen. Since I am, I believe, the oldest living being to have known and witnessed Gregory Paradise in action I feel obliged to relate this experience since his modesty has denied him the accolades and the place in the history of strongmen that he deserves.
