JOE AT WORK
Those who know Joe best will confirm that the candid shots of Joe at work on the magazines reveal the most about him as a person. In a real sense, Joe was always working. He never stopped thinking about the magazines and bodybuilding. In Montreal, New York City or Los Angeles, Joe’s office would be crammed with articles, photo-sheets, memos to his editors and photographers, and letters from his readers and fans. Outworking a staff sometimes half his age, Joe Weider’s magazines always beautifully displayed, carefully edited and contained the most clear, concise and informative prose in the trade.
