George Pogosov, Co-Head Fencing Coach at Stanford University, Olympic Champion and medalist, and former seven time World Champion, has created an authoritative collection of autographs by the fencers who have won medals at the Olympics and World Championships. The collection is quite expansive - and most of the collection will be on display. The collection is a part of a larger theme, which includes original tickets, programs, photos, and philatelic material – it is organized chronologically by event and is currently shared via Facebook.  This will be the first time that the collection has been exhibited.  This is a free event.

The exhibition will open on June 28th in honor of all of the fencers and organizers that will be coming to the Bay Area to participate in The USA Fencing National Championships and July Challenge.  The competition will be held in San Jose, Calif. from June 27 – July 6. Competition will be held at the San Jose Convention Center, which has held many USFA National events.  Over four thousand fencers are expected to compete in the event.

Several illustrious persons from the fencing and Stanford community are expected to attend the viewing, we are extremely honored that Donald Anthony, Chairman of the Board and President of the US Fencing will be attending the exhibit.  Mr. Pogosov is very grateful to all of the athletes and collectors who have donated materials to this collection – we look forward in sharing this unique collection with you in person.
