most of these older books are out of print and hard to come by except if you want to pay an exorbiant price on e-bay etc. but you may be in luck robert kennedy of musclemag international is putting out a special issue featuring many of the top bodybuilders  of the period 1940-1990. it should be out in the next several monthes watch for it.

Thanks funk!

while weider probably helped bodybuilding continue  for all these years he might have hurt it by doing away with the mister titles. in the 60's and 70's esp. people cared who won the  mr america title. who knows or even cares who won the nationals or world's beside the hardcore fan. opinions?

Funk, to the best of my knowledge, the "Mr " titles were the exclusive 'properties' of the AAU as determined in a federal court.

I also sort of recall our attempt to revive the "Mr America" title but eventually discovered that it was 'owned' by a men's clothing business.

Anyone have an update on this subject?

so maybe that's why weider and dan lurie discontinued there use, but still could use mr. olympia because that's an original name? lurie mr olympus.

Yes, Funk, you're basically correct.

I forgett the exact details, but the NPC and the AAU went to court to settle which organization had the right to use specific bodybuilding titles.

After that case was heard the NPC was either ordered to not use (or decided not to use) the term "Mr." in any of its titles. (There were no "Miss" titles at that time to the best of my recollection.)

I believe that same court case made a decision which prevented any amateur sports governing body from rejecting an individual's entry simply because he had participatrd in a rival organization's contest.
