Charles Atlas


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.

Died in 1972.

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.
