The Origins Of Organized Armwrestling

I've written an article about how the sport of wristwrestling (armwrestling) originally evolved in Petaluma during the '50s. Almost all of the information was gathered from the microfilm archives of the Petaluma Argus-Courier, the newspaper for which Bill Soberanes (one of the originators of the event) was a columnist.

I've been searching for this information for what seems like forever, and I'm certain I am the first one to publish most of this information online.

This is the first of a planned four part series on Petaluma and the World Wristwrestling Championship.
