The Stabler Running Collection at Syracuse University

Ed Stabler Syracuse Chargers National Distance Running Collection was created by the Syracuse Chargers Track Club and Syracuse University, to honor Engineering Professor Ed Stabler for his academic service and for his own accomplishment in long distance running.[1]  The collection was established in 1998 at the Syracuse University Libraries “to preserve the rich heritage of distance running through the stories of runners and races” [2]
