History of Physical Culture Library

Our Library contains two decades of collective literary work and rare historical publications from the early 1900's to modern times. The Library has become a remarkable source of inspiration for people of all ages. It provides resources to meet the needs of individuals, historians, media outlets, scholars, researchers and the academic community. It contains hundreds of rare books, articles and photos donated by collectors from all over the world who support our vision to preserve history.  The HOPC Team of historians and writers voluntarily contribute their literary work from Canada, England, United States and Australia. Illustrations by Chris Bostick, HOPC Art Director bring these historical treasures alive!


Only $19.95 for entire year! Proceeds help fund our operating costs.
