National Wrestling Hall of Fame

Dean Rockwell Library and Research Center

Students of the sport, or people who just love to read, will enjoy the Dean Rockwell Library and Research Center. There are over 300 books about wrestling, one dating back to 1757, and thousands of magazines and newspapers. In addition, an oak roll-top desk purchased by Frank Gotch in 1911 is on display in the library. The library is named for Dean Rockwell, a World War II hero who became a huge force in the development of amateur wrestling in this country.
