11/04/2004 Entry: "11/5/2004: Letter from Pudgy Stockton"

About two decades ago I began a corrspondence with Pudgy Stockton and her husband Les Stockton. The ongoing letters/phone calls/and thoughts have been ultra-rewarding for me with these two splendid old time physical culturists.

Some years ago, Les began organizing his papers on their connnections to bodybuilding and lifting, and he sent me copies of many papers as he organized them. Occasionally, in the coming months, I will be sharing newspaper clippings and photos with you as a recurring ingredient to this site.

We begin this week with a letter from Pudgy to me from 1985.
