Physique Pictorial 1962

This may be the latest dated physique photo of Don Deckman.  It is from a 1962 edition of Bob Mizer's Physique Pictorial magazine and states Don's age as 25.  According to official records, he was born in 1935, so this picture may have actually been taken in 1960.  It wasn't that unusual for Mr. Mizer to publish photos some time after they were taken, so there isn't necessarily a conflict there.  Perhaps even more interesting is the fact that we are told that Mr. Deckman began modeling at age 17, indicating that he posed for the AMG slides shown earlier in today's series while in high school.  Don would have been married to his first wife, Janet, for three years when this was taken.
