The Robert J. Young Collection

Donated by a life-long advocate of healthy living, the Robert J. Young Collection contains a significant body of materials related to the physical culture movement in America. It includes materials by and about body-builder and media mogul Bernarr Macfadden, whose popular periodicals fought Victorian prudery and medical quackery, and promoted better living through exercise, diet, and homeopathic remedies.
