Mr. America

The Wall Street Journal recently published this review of Mr. America, a biography of Bernarr Macfadden.

Shown above posing at his 70th birthday, Macfadden was known as the originator and primary moving force behind the American “physical culture” movement.

The story of his life is interesting to follow, and we’re going to be on the lookout for this book at our local library (unless we break down and order it from Amazon first).
