Abstract:

A comprehensive collection of materials pertaining to the sport of boxing assembled by boxing aficionado Hank Kaplan. Because of Kaplan's devotion to collecting the stories that often went untold, and his commitment to obscure and ephemeral objects, the scope of the collection is vast. The collection features 2,600 book titles, 500,000 rare prints and negatives, hundreds of linear feet of newspaper clippings from 1890-2007, more than 300 audiotapes and videotapes, 1200 posters, more than 200 boxes of publications, dozens of scrapbooks, reams of correspondence, and over 100 boxes of memorabilia items. Included is autographed money, a heavy bag Cassius Clay punched before renaming himself Muhammad Ali, a gold cigarette case that Max Baer gave his trainer, Izzy Kline, and the very scissors that Kaplan used to cut up the thousands of newspaper clippings spanning the last century of boxing history.
