Wade....
How large is that room? Or is it more than one room?
I suspect that's more pure archery equipment than even Fred had in his museum...Fantastic!!!

Wade, Any chance for a few more photos of your archery library -- as you know, I collect primarily books and am always interested in other archery collectors' libraries. TC

Tom - It is the entire 2,000 square foot basement, with some separating walls but no doors or doorways, sort of one continuous open area. Haven't got all the photographs taken yet, as there are still some very messy piles that need to be cleaned up. There are also a few unorganized storage areas of extra stuff.

Tox - We should ask you to post photographs of your archery library. I'm certain your library is far more extensive than mine.

Wade, I don't know about that -- your archery library is huge as well as comprehensive. My library is scattered in bookcases and drawers all over the house not to mention the ephemera which is stored in a number of places in plastic containers. You have, literally, a museum. It's really cool! TC

Here is some of the controlled mess... Sort of the cord wood that Larry spoke of earlier.

Seven pairs of 5/8" x 16" dowels with extra bows that need a new home...

 -


A few more of the 5/8" x 16" dowels of extra bows on the opposite wall...
 -


Seven more sets of dowels on an unfinished wall, mostly extra bows that also need a new home...

 -


This box of bows is even less organized than the dowel approach...

Gee, even your "cord wood" is pretty well organized. I'm extremely impressed. Thanks for sharing these pictures with us!

I've pretty much followed this thread since the first day you posted, Wade. I've started to post my thoughts several times, and can't quite put them to words. I feel honored to be able to see so much archery history for free. I know it's not like being there, as we can't see every individual piece, but it's still stunning. I would consider seeing this collection in person as the eighth wonder of the world.

Not only have you amassed a wonderful collection of archery history, but the hours of photography you have logged as well as the research and documentation. Having met you at Comptons, and spending time listening to the passion you have for this sport, it doesn't surprise me the collection you have. I'm still amazed at seeing it all.

All I can say is I hope to see it all someday!!
