Holiday On Ice, Europe (1957)


Recent Additions to the Collection

The collection is currently housed in Knoxville, Tennessee, where “Holiday On Ice” rehearsed and premiered its touring productions in the early 1960s.  The Foundation’s board of directors promises to carefully catalog, preserve, and share these precious memories of professional show skating.  We eventually plan to open a museum for public display of these treasures. In the meantime, we are building a database of all the archived material, for display on this web site and through social media.
