Strength and Health Magazine, November, 1969

Posted on Thursday, March 24th, 2016 by John Wood

How’s this for a groovy cover? The November, 1969 issue of Strength and Health magazine featured this somewhat psychedelic mixed media illustration by Frank Hummel. Front and center is 1963 Mr. America Vern Weaver doing an overhead pulldown with a chest expander. The lovely Vera Christensen is at the left squatting. This issue also has a feature on the newly crowned Teenage Mr. America Bob Gallucci. Hummel had several other Strength and Health magazine covers around the same time period (although none as flashy as this one.)
