One of this blog’s strongest supporters, Wilum Hopfrog Pugmire (himself an accomplished writer of weird fiction), recently asked for MORE pictures of WHH. Always happy to oblige, I present this gallery of Hodgson pics!
One of the promo shots WHH did of himself for his “School of Physical Culture”
This accompanied one of WHH’s articles on exercise.
This staged photo of WHH at a ship’s wheel was used in his lectures about life at sea.
A early photo of WHH. I am not sure of the year but probably roughly around 1903 or so.
Another ‘posed’ picture of WHH. Possibly a few years after the last one.
A nice profile shot of WHH in uniform. Likely around 1916 or so.
Another military shot. All of these are likely from the same period.
More from the same photo session.
Still another photo of WHH and his horse! (Courtesy of University of Georgia.)
And there you have it! Some nice photos of this legendary writer. Several people have expressed that, although they knew his work, they had no idea what WHH actually looked like! Well, now you know! Also, despite being somewhat short in stature, WHH was very strong and well-build due to his life-long interest in exercise and physical culture.
