Biography

Italian-American physical culturist called "the world's most perfectly developed man." After a puny youth, he began body-building and devised a system he called "dynamic tension." Atlas publicized his system in 1942 by pulling six cars chained together for a mile.

He died on 24 December 1972, aged 80, in Long Beach, New York.

Source Notes

In 2007, Sy Scholfield requested data from Grazia Bordoni, who replied "Dear Sy, as you can see in the attached document [birth record], Acri answered: The only person registerd as Angelo Siciliano was born on 22 november 1892 at 14 (2p.m.). father: Luigi. mother: Angela Maria Luzzi. I don't know if this is the same person your are looking for, maybe not, name and surname are quite common in that place." Unless another birth record can be found this is all we have to go on.

Previously this entry had 30 October 1893, 1:19pm, Acri, Italy, with the following source notes: Ben Allen Fields spec. in AA, 11/1946, given as LMT. PC quotes Sabian Symbols at 2:00 PM; not in Sabian Symbols. Drew gives 1:00 PM, "near Chicago"

Wikipedia has 1892 as birth year, and links as a source to an image of his gravestone. As gravestones are not birth certificates, and it is likely that one of the quotes sources has seen a document with time, 1893 is still kept, but Rodden Rating downgraded to XX. Many websites have 1893 as birth year.
