An interesting story from 40+ years ago

T9, almost always the excuse, almost never the reason.

see Alabama, Notre Dame,  Oregon, BosU.

I've never heard much about Alabama wrestling.  When did they have a program?  And why was it dropped?

I know Auburn had a good program in the early 1980's, that was dropped after finishing in the top ten at the NCAA tournament, but I've never heard much about Alabama.

I never hear about good HS wrestlers coming out of Alabama or MS. I do occasionally hear about good HS wrestlers in TX, GA, and FL. It's surprising there's no college wrestling in any of those states - particularly FL.

I wrote Oregon State and meant Oregon State. They dropped for a few months after Howard Harris won in '80.

Can you just pull that microfiche tape out and maybe get a pic with your 110 automatic, then run it down to 1hr film developer. You're gonna need AKHUNTERS address and a stamp so you can mail him the negative.  I would hope that would be enough confirmation.
