MB, Arnold looks more like he's squatting.

FUNK, I'm impressed by your weight game knowledge. I honestly didn't think anyone would ID Pax, but ou did. Plus his heart incident.

I'm gonna throw a few weight related names at ya to see if you can ID them without searching on the net. Let me know if you can do it ....

FUNK, the photo with Arnold, Draper, and Wayne Anderson (ISMC) was taken by myself many years ago.

Holy cow....Pax Beale....how could I forget him? One of the greatest self promoters of our time. I was on stage with him at least twice. When he was announced the audience went wild. I wondered "Who TF is he?"
He promoted winning the Mr. America Over 40. Well that was not the AAU (I was National Masters Chairman for a while) as they called it Masters Mr. America. The NPC calls their National show Masters Nationals where Pax took 4th if I recall in Over 60 Heavyweight. The Venice Muscle Beach had a few shows in the 70s they called the Mr. America Over 40. Perhaps? The AAU put a stop to the trademark infringement as they did with the NPC. Pax also claimed 19 1/2" arms. What? Then mine were 20". I always want to say..."He was a nice guy". However Pax was standoffish so I never got to know him to comment. Pax did overcome MAJOR heart surgery. Tough nut!! Sure hope he is still around pushing the iron.

One old photo and the other was taken two years ago at the USA Championships.

You should be able to ID two of them in the USA shot/



I trained in the same gym as John back in the day. He was a county cop but I believe he left to pursue pro bodybuilding. As far as I know he never went back to being a cop. I wonder what he's doing now?

MB, Didnít PAX hold a patent on some important piece of medical equipment related to heart surgery. I worked with Pax a couple of times and Keith knew him well and told ne that story once upon a time but I have forgotten it over the yearso

I run into Pax once in a while when I am visiting LA and I believe he now owns and lives in one of those nice houses on Venice Beach. Last saw Pax about two years ago when that photo was taken.

I donít know anything about John H. but Gene stays in contact with most of those old timers and Iíll give him a call for an update.

Under another topic about bodybuilders from the past Ö I believe it was Funk who posted a photo of Walt MILNER (from Canada if I recall correctly).

Back in the day when Walter was just beginning to get national publicity, there was a story printed about his training methods which most of us found to be very interesting.

If I recall that story correctly, he would lock himself up in a cabin during the winter, get snowed-in, and train until the snow thawed and summer arrived.

I have met Canadians who have confirmed this but it could be a confirmed exaggeration.

Speaking about Canada Ö. Does anyone recall Ray Beulieu??? (Spelling??). Another old friend from way back when who won some major title up north and then disappeared from my radar. Once worked for Canadian  Airlines.

And also JOHN MIKL (THOR Ė God of Thunder) who had a rock group and most likely still does. Another old friend Iíve long forgotten and ..... with a couple of interesting stories for a later post.
