the second mr a was roland essmaker born 1916 died 2002. he won in 1939, the interesting thing here was that roland tried again for the mr america crown in 1941 however this time he didn't place.

after grimek won the contest twice they made a rule that you could only win mr america once and that was it for you. so next up was 1942 frank leight born 1912 died 1990. frank usually won the best chest award in most contests he entered.

next in line jules bacon1917- to 2007.. this is the year dan lurie thought he should have won, as he was the most muscular winner for the second year in a row of three total times.

next in line the 1944 winner was steve stanko, the largest man till this point to win the contest. stanko was an avid weightlifter for the york barbell club. steve was the first man to total 1000 lbs in the three olympic lifts.

Although there is some controversy regarding who was the first AAU Mr. America, because the contest Goodrich won allowed professionals and amateurs, it appears to me, and there are several mentions in the old mags supporting this, that the first AAU-endorsed Mr. America was the one in 1939 won by Roland Essmaker.
Strength & Health stated this on more than one occasion in the early years, then switched to indicating that Grimek was the first AAU Mr. America. Essmaker told me he had written to S&H asking why they were trying to re-write history, but got no satisfactory response.

maybe it was because bob hoffman didn't approve of roland essmaker who was probably not a competetive olympic weightlifter. just a thought.

1947 brings us up to the hercules man steve reeves 1926-2000. little needs to be said about this mr a, he perhaps more than any other bodybuilder had more people taking up the weights due to him.
