Item #980

A collection of photographs, clippings and memorabilia which belonged to Thelma Montojo, a Cuban woman wrestler in the 1950s. Other names that she went by include Telma Montojo Ramons, Herna, and Mima. In this grouping there are 65 photographs, 3 official documents (I.D. and official sports cards),10 newspaper clippings, pamphlets, a letter, and other advertisements. A couple of items are about other wrestlers. All of the items are in Spanish and were apparently together in a photo album at one point. Currently, they are house in an archival binder in a box. Their condition is rough, and several items were laminated to protect them at some point.

There is one letter dated 1956, from the Promoter Gilberto Becerra, and it talks of her visiting the United States. A clipping tells of a great fight between Montojo and Silvia Hernadez. There are photos of her wrestling, boxing, lifting weights, modeling swimwear and some doing aerobics on on a rooftop.

A fascinating collection.
