Peter Gordon by Spartan - at age 19
This image is from the "Physique Pictorial" issue of October, 1953. In the text not included in the scan we learn that Peter was "age[d] 19, ht 6', wt 170#. A former art student at UCLA, he is now a U.S. Air Corps cadet." One must assume that Mizer is giving his age in the photo, for in the December, 1953 issue (sorry, no scan available) Peter is shown in a photo at the given age of 18, and Mizer also tells us that
young Gordon served for two years as an air cadet in Texas and from there to Korea where he received injuries resulting in his discharge. Pete has now entered advertising, which promises to be a very successful career for him.
