George Jowett, Ottley Coulter, David Willoughby and the Organization of American Weightlifting, 1911-1924

by John D Fair

I do not hesitate to say that the beginning was a very hard struggle, and that there were times when the outlook was dark, owing to the antagonism and disinterest evinced from certain quarters where such conditions should never have arisen.
The present success is all due to the fact that my brother officials in the cause stuck to their guns and never quit, and I hope that our many members will never forget their efforts and the way that they helped myself make this organization what it is now, a power for good.

óGeorge F. Jowett, 1925
