Wrestling in Pottsville

New Member Knew O'Hara's Nephew
By Lee Hammel
I have to thank you for sending me the link to the John O'Hara Society. I joined it. And I believe that I'm the only member of the society to have wrestled his nephew. I grew up in O'Hara's hometown Pottisville, and was on the wrestling team with O'Hara's nephew.

O'Hara was scrupulously ignored in Pottsville while I was there, because so many of the townspeople are recognizable in his books, and they didn't appreciate it. The city libary did not carry his books back then.

Anyway, hope all is well with you.
