It is hard to determine an "all" in finding resources. Would as many

Hi Princess,

Google lists 44 hits where some mention of Mr. Ambrose is made.  I
also did a cursory, $2 search at, and was
satisfied that Google has links to almost everything available on Mr.
Ambrose on the Web.  Please note that I've not provided links to sites
where Mr. Ambrose is simply named as officiating at a match.

In order, an interview with Mr. Ambrose on the PennState site is here:

This leads to Mr. Ambrose's CV here...

A 2002 press release, "Geller and Ambrose selected as Outstanding
Officials by the National Wrestling Hall of Fame" can be read here...

The National Wrestling Hall of Hame has this biography of Ambrose:

A photo of Ambrose officiating at the 2000 NCAA Tournament:

A mention of Ambrose, "The biggest controversy surrounding this dual

An April 2002 issue of "The Reporter" notes Ambrose being named to the
National Wrestling Hall of Fame as an Outstanding Wrestling Official. 
This an Acrobat document, and the free Acrobat Reader... needed to view it:

Another Acrobat document, "The Journal of the National Wrestling Hall
of Fame and Museum" has an article and photograph of Ambrose on Page

A Jan. 14, 2001 issue of  "WIN" (Wrestling International Newsmagazine)
notes of Penn State's Upset of 10th Ranked Lehigh, "Wright was a
decided underdog as he entered the 157-pound match with Penn State
trailing the dual meet 13-9. However, he wasted little time in
clamping a head lock on Bernholz and taking him flat to his back. A
slap of the mat by referee Fred Ambrose was followed by a heated
debate involving both benches. When the smoke had cleared Penn State
held a15-13 lead and was looking squarely at the opportunity to knock
off its first Top 10 ranked opponent since defeating No. 3 Minnesota
nearly three years ago.":

The "Stillwater News Press" of Stillwater, OK mentions Ambrose
receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award in an article entitled,
"Modest heroes"

The only photos of Ambrose I found through a Google image search
appear on pages that I cite above.  However, here's the results of
that search: lists several other photos, almost all from ""
