1912 - CHAMPION LOUIS CYR DIES AT MONTREAL
By International News Service
MONTREAL, Nov. 10. - Louis Cyr, aged forty-nine, born at St. Cyprien, Quebec, the world's champion weight lifter, died here today at his daughter's residence after a week's illness. Cyr toured Europe exhibited with the Barnum and Ringling concerns, and ran a circus himself for a time in Canada and the United States. His best unequaled record was made in Boston in 1895 when he lifted eighteen men on a platform - a total weight of 3665 pounds. He weighed at one time 365, but dropped recently to 185. He was an inveterate smoker and a great eater, but a teetotaler. His mother-in-law, Mrs. Comtois, died from heart failure at Cyr's bedside yesterday morning.
