December 10, 2003 This was told to me off the record, but since he has passed, it is safe to share it.

A friend called me to inform that Gary Cleveland was dying from cancer and that he was entering hospice. Gary died January 03, 2004.

Gary was a very clever writer.

(because the above is a repeat post because I respected Gary so much, see another fact below)

December 10, 1960 Paul Mintal won Mr. Salt Lake Erie

do high level weightlifters and bodybuilders die of cancer more frequently than the general population?

December 12, 1905 Arthur Saxon Bent Pressed 370 lbs. Did he stand erect with the weight, or not? Sources differ.

If you have these mags:

SH 4-36 p 50

MMIA 1976 p 193

Super Athletes p 79

Iron Game p 62

HS 3-19-1953 p 32

BAWB 2-48 p 56

AHC Vol 2 p 23

SH 3-53 p 17 indicates he did stand erect.

December 13, 1952 Here is an example of something I had filed as announced, but never encountered the results. That is why I know the Mr. East Midlands andthe Miss Nottinghamshire contests were happening on this date, and that Juan Ferrero was to be guest poser.

But I either lack the issue of H&S that presented the results, or those results were not shared, or human error on my part

If any member knows the results, please share.
