The following letter was submitted to Superman Through the Ages! in June of 2006:

Dear Sir,

Are you aware that at the 1939 Worlds Fair held at Flushing Meadows, Queens in NYC there was a contest sponsored by 'Super Man' comics to select a 'Super Boy & Girl'.

There was an entry coupon on the back of the comic book.

I won the boys event and Maureen Reynolds won the girls.

The judges were some notable people but Charles Atlas really was the deciding judge.

I still have the trophy and photos taken of us also a photo appeared of us in the NY Times paper.

After the event I visited the office of Superman comics and met the authors.

I lived in Astoria, Queens at the time and I believe Maureen lived in Manhattan.

Thought you would like to know.

Thanks
Bill Aronis
Kingston, NY


After winning the Super-boy contest, Bill Aronis went on to become a competetive weightlifter.  In 1996, he was still competing and came in third in the World Masters in Baton Rouge, La.
