The National Museum of Roller Skating announces the release of a book about roller skating leaders that celebrates major contributions made to the development of this sport as a recreation and industry. These Titans and Heroes arose from the ranks of thousands of men and women who over the past 150 years have contributed unselfishly to the creation and structure of roller skating, leaving behind the legacy that millions of Americans enjoy today.

Gleaned from the archives of the National Museum of Roller Skating, this book is intended to preserve appreciation for the giants of our sport whose past contributions have combined to create the recreation, sport and industry of roller skating as we know it. With this collection of historical events and profiles, we seek to identify and briefly describe the work of those who were the architects, the sculptors, the innovators, the preservers and role models that shaped this roller skating inheritance.
An organization can only be as good as its leaders. In a recreational business environment, populated by entrepreneurial types, rink owners frequently prefer marching to their own drum beat. Starting during the adverse conditions of 1937, in the throes of the Great Depression, the organizers of the RSROA found common cause.
