Andy Shaw, the United States Fencing Association's Official Historian, has been collecting, storing, framing, archiving, reproducing, and cataloging the largest private collection on display in the country. While the Museum has received many gracious donations of fencing equipment and uniforms, Andy has been operating this collection at his own expense for many years. The walls of the Fairfield Avenue School of Fencing display many hundreds of these items for all to enjoy.

What are fencers saying about the Museum of American Fencing?

"You’re doing such fantastic work.  It’s inspiring.  Please keep it up."

"The site is a beauty!"
Denise O'Connor

Your Museum's website has been for me an amazing surprise . Not only by the way it is organized that permits us to imagine the richess of the museum patrimony, but also for the donations that have been made to it by families of disappeared fencers, or by old (not so much old) excellent fencers, like some friends of me like Carl Borack , Allan Jay, George Kolombatovich... that offered pieces that were certainly precious for them. And, I underline that too, by the young generation of  American fencers, world and olympic champions, as a contribution for the promotion of the old sport that they have chosen. You have made a superlative fencing museum and an enormous contribution for our ancient swords sport. Thank you !
JJValarinho
Former president of Portuguese Fencing Federation, member of  FIE's commission, organiser of some great competitions like 2002 world championships...
 
"Your website is excellent - a real labour of love for American fencing."

"You did a great job with this website.  For me, it's like reliving history.  Creating a fencing museum is a great idea.  Congratulations!"
Steve Sobel, 2-time President of the USFA.

"What you have done is truly amazing. I sincerely thank you for sharing your great knowledge of our sport so unselfishly."
