He had Steve Reeves-like pectoralis major development commonly referred to in the bodybuilding mags as "square pecs".

Tyrone Youngs placed 7th in the 1973 Mr. America. A few years later he won the natural Mr. America.

Could this be the same guy?

That G. Fisher was publicized in MD. An almost body weight, contest quality curl is fantastic.

December 06, 1991 Bert Goodrich died. Born December 26, 1906, age 84

Based on the June 10, 1939 contest in Amsterdam, New York, some people refer to Bert as the first Mr. America. But he was a pro, not an amateur, so I consider  when Roland Essmaker won the AAU Mr. America title that he was the first Mr. America. Plus the AAU was involved when Essmaker won.

Besides, the official title of the contest won by Goodrich was "America's Finest Physique'. Goodrich edged out Elmer Farnham by one point.
