The article surprisingly omits the fact Lionel Strongfort was a strict vegetarian. You can read about it in Adam D. 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 important because Strongfort might have been the strongest man in the world.
