USJA and USJF joint Archivist Committee

USJA and USJF have recently undertaken a joint venture regarding the Archivist Committee. Our goal is to preserve judo history in the United States in one location. Each organization will maintain possession of its own assets while sharing them on one website. Our current inventory is approximately 145,000 pages of judo historical documents, but there are many things that are missing. These range from bracket sheets, newspaper articles, programs from various tournaments and various judo publications.

Do you have judo programs, newspaper articles, bracket sheets and/or other artifacts lying around the house or garage? Has someone in your family been after you to get rid of these papers? If so, please contact the Archivist Committee to see if your items are in their inventory. If not, the committee can scan and return the documents to you if desired.

The committee points of contacts are:
