Holt Hockey Archives

    The Charles E. Holt Archives of American Hockey—named after UNH's legendary Hall of Fame coach—was established in 2000 to provide a repository for materials documenting the history of men's and women's hockey. It aims to be inclusive of all American hockey, not just New England or college hockey.

    The Holt Archives is now the official repository for the American Hockey Coaches Association, the Hockey East Association and the Eastern College Athletic Conference's records.

    Additional partners include the Society for International Hockey Research, the United States Hockey Hall of Fame, and USA Hockey.

    Materials in the archive include organizational records, deliberations on rules changes, tournament developments, league branding initiatives, player scrapbooks, photographs, media publications, taped interviews, and artifacts. Its collection of NCAA Hockey Guides and rule books is likely the most comprehensive in the country publicly available to researchers.
