Bob Ospen


Here is a great photograph of Bob Ospen, of whom I know nothing, but I suspect by his haircut this photograph was taken in the 1950's.

Don Fuller




Don Fuller is one of my all-time favorite beefcake models. He was photographed by many of the top physique photographers of the 1950's, and appears in both The Male Figure and Physique Pictorial. I think he looks like he should have been a matinee idol.

Doug Felton





Here are four photographs of Doug Felton, of whom I know nothing. If someone told me he was their squeaky clean neighbor in the early 1960's, I would believe them. He seems delighted in these outdoors photographs.

I know nothing about Lance Arlen, though I suspect he modeled during the 1950's.

Jim Collette, Tommy Evans, AMG









Here are six photographs by AMG of the hugely popular Jim Collette wrestling the fairer-haired Tommy Evans. I believe I read somewhere that AMG's Bob Mizer loathed photographing these wrestling scenarios, but followed each decade's changing tastes. I believe these photographs were taken in the mid to late 1960's.

Al Wilisch








I know nothing about Al Wilisch other than he appears in beefcake magazines from the 1950's. Bruce of Los Angeles photographed him, too, but I do not know who took these photographs.

Phil Knight




I believe all of these photographs were taken by Bruce of Los Angeles. I especially like the one of Phil using the skillet in the kitchen. It is included in a sprawling pictorial spread featuring Phil in Volume 12 of The Male Figure by Bruce of Los Angeles.
