We have approval from the curator of the Massachusetts Sports Museum, Richard Johnson, to use their storage facility (off-site...Iron Mt.) to store our archival material. We are looking for anything that relates to wrestling at any level from the very beginning of time: photos, film, videos, newspaper articles, score books, programs, trophies, uniforms, head gear, shoes, timers, you name it. We are looking for physical donations, which we will organize and categorize what we collect and deliver it to the museum on a continual basis as we go along. Anything we archive will be in the safest, most professional archival space possible. We will collect material at the annual banquet and at other events. Please contact Chairman Randy Whitehead if you have anything you would like to donate.

Our Mission: To honor the sport of wrestling by preserving its history, recognizing extraordinary individual achievements, and inspiring future generations
