Re: Which physical culturists were vegetarian?

I am going to add Amos Alonzo Stagg to this list. He was an American football coach but he took an interest in physical culture and from reports he was a vegetarian. He lived to be 102.

Re: Lionel Strongfort

Shprintzen's book The Vegetarian Crusade: The Rise of an American Reform Movement, 1817-1921 . Strongfort's diet was covered in the Physical Culture magazine. I do find these facts imp...
