Turkey and Sergio

Posted on Monday, November 11th, 2019 by John Wood
Larry “Turkey” Gilmore shakes hands with Sergio Oliva, some time in 1970. “Turkey” was a lifter who happened to live in Deland, Florida and became friends with Arthur Jones in the early days of Nautilus. Among other things, Turkey helped Arthur build “The Blue Monster,” spotted during workouts in the Quonset hut, and generally did any other odd jobs that were necessary — he was instrumental in getting Nautilus off the ground. You can read more about him here and here.
