In Living Color - Floyd Page by Russ Warner
I don't recall ever seeing this gent before today. I found this image trolling through eBay, trying to find something cool for you. The image really struck me -- just so damn sexy! Floyd was the 1948 Pro Mr. America. He had a short competitive career from 1946 through 1950, but he continued to appear on magazine covers until 1960. He died young at the age of 38. My thanks goes out to Muscle Memory for this info.
(I'm giving this photo a tentative attribution to Russ Warner, as he has taken several other shots of Floyd and was a regular cover photographer for the Weiders at this time.)
