History

The Jim Koch Amateur Wrestling Collection contains 31 wrestling books and 61 bound volumes of Amateur Wrestling News, the oldest and most respected wrestling publication in the country. The collection’s AWN issues date from January 1956 to the present. The monthly magazine features results at the high school, college, and world levels. Tournaments and major conferences are covered in detail.

The collection belonged to Jim Koch, a South Dakota State University graduate and esteemed college wrestling coach. Koch’s family donated the collection to Briggs Library in 2017, thanks to the facilitation of library volunteer Bob Bartling. Bartling created an index of every issue of AWN, which will be converted to a database soon. Bartling was also responsible for bringing in the ]Prairie Striders Running Club Library](https://www.sdstate.edu/sdsu-archives-and-special-collections/prairie-striders-running-club-library).
