I will do some checking- may be a typo on my part. In AAU competition I have Baratta, but have wondered if two different men or only two different spellings.

Joe, do you have any results of the 1969 Philadelphia Open. I believe it was held on the 11th or 18th of January. It was one of the top meets on the East Coast back in the day.

At that point in time Ed, Covington was a pretty good bb and a Philly favorite. Gallucci and Handley hit their respective peaks in the 70's.

Covington was teenage Mr. America in '68. Gallucci won the same title in '69.

Handley was Mr. Midatlantic in 1970 & 3 place in his class in AAU Mr. World the same year. i first saw him in the AAU Mr. Eastern America that Chris Dickerson won in 1966 or '67. Both he and Covington were in the 1968 Mr America.

I don't criticize the relative placings of the 3, it the unrecogized names in between.

Looking at the lifting, Richard Rosen was a neighbor of mine in hewlett ("jewlett"), ny.

the house he lived in later became a ritual bath or a synagogue (it wasn't that big either).

no, only met him once, working out in the garage at his parent's house. I was in high school, he was in law school.

first time i ever saw a york power rack. first or second time i ever saw an olympic barbell and olympic lifting.

Larry Mintz went on to be a national level lifter in both olympic & power lifting.

Ed, Upson was a pretty good bb back then, very good upper body, very muscular. I never heard of the guy in third, but if you put an "o" at the end of his name it becomes Pandolfo as in Tony.

for a long time Tony Pandolfo was kept out of AAU contests because he'd been a gym owner (Bodybuilding Inc. in Valley Stream) and competed in a IFBB contest (see musclememory).
