ArmDrag.com is looking for volunteers to help populate the Archives.
We're not only looking for results, but tournament brackets, photos, and
articles as well. Many college and public libraries have microform copies
of complete newspapers dating back over 100 years. In them, you can find
lots of wrestling results. If you enjoy doing research, and you have some time,
make a trip to the library and check it out. Ask a librarian how to get
started and how to print out the articles that you find.

ARMDRAG NOTE: Were Tech athletes really the "Shopmen"? Were their school

referred to them as "Shopmen," and Edison High, whom they later would become,
uses the colors maroon & gray.
