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.

strong men had a record of two wins and four defeats in this year's
wrestling competition. Alden placed fifth in the county which was
won by Oakfield, the defending champions. Alden had two third place
winners in the county, Gary Garrison and Dick Mansfield. With the
many new men it was a very good year from the point of view of
experience. (The Album, 1954)
