RIP: George Gunderson

George Gunderson, a Lifetime member of the CAC, has died.

I met George through Buddy Rose. George presented Buddy some photos he took in the early 70s, when Buddy started his career in the AWA. I was always impressed with George's love and knowledge of the business, but also how kind and passionate he was. You don't meet a lot of people like him.

He was a long-time fan of the wrestling business. You may have met him last year in Las Vegas, or maybe you know him from his nostalgia site at

Please send cards and letters to the following address:
450 Shabbona Drive
Park Forest IL 60466

All of us here at the CAC send our deepest condolences to his family and friends.

-- Kurt Nielsen
