THE JUNIE and DOLORES STUDER LIBRARY
MASSILLON TIGER FOOTBALL HISTORY
The Library is a complete collection of historical data from the Massillon Tigers earliest days of football to the present day. It includes newspaper articles, other printed material, and photographs that show the chronological story of the Tigers in its entirety. It also currently holds data on over 2,000 past players, coaches, and other involved individuals.
The Studer’s have spent countless hours on this endeavor since they retired in 2001 from the sign business. They have had a long list of volunteers who viewed many reels of newspaper microfilm at the Massillon, Canton, Cleveland, Akron, Mansfield, and Warren libraries to provide them with the material that makes up this large volume of work. The Library currently holds 270 volumes and more pages than you would want to count.
The information contained in the Library has already provided material to the Cleveland Browns, Cincinnati Bengal’s ESPN, NFL Films, and a number of authors. The Library is available for research by contacting Gary Vogt. The future plan of the Massillon Tiger Football Museum is to digitize the contents of the Library so that it can be viewed on this site.
The Studers have recently retired from the day to day maintenance of the Library. Gary Vogt, the current team historian has assumed this responsibility, with Junie continuing to provide assistance and consul as needed. The Massillon Tiger Football Booster Club would like to honor the Studers for all their years of dedication and hard work by naming this collection THE JUNIE AND DOLORES STUDER LIBRARY OF MASSILLON TIGER FOOTBALL HISTORY.
