Thoughts on John Grimek?

Dr. Darden —

I well imagine that you personally know very many top-class bodybuilders from over the years. How about John Grimek? I remember him from the York muscle mags. Did you ever meet him? If so, how big did he look in person?

I met Grimek several times and talked with him briefly. He was short and thick, but he walked gracefully in street clothes. I never saw him in his workout gear.

Thanks much for the reply.

I know that Jones wrote about him occasionally…
