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.

Coach Ed Pike, who piloted some of our strongest pre-war mat squads, returned this year to resume the direction of RIT's grunt and groan artists. With Ken Christian as the only holdover from last year's few practice matches, Pike started with an inexperienced but ambitious crew which rapidly grew in strength to challenge some of the best collegiate squads.

Included in the 1947-48 schedule were meets with Buffalo University, Alfred University, Sampson College, Ontario A & M, St. Lawrence University, and Case Institute of Technology. After the close of the regular season, Coach Pike took a few of the most promising tusslers to the annual Inter-State Invitational Meet at Cleveland. Ralph Tufts, Publishing and Printing Instructor, was the advising faculty manager. (Techmila, 1948)
