Still under construction.For starters,here's the USA National Medal Point List,1914-2003.

The complete US National Men's figures final standings,1991-97.

Figures became a unisex event for 1998-9,though only ladies qualified. There has,indefensibly,been no championship since 1999.

US Nationals have awarded dance medals in Waltz (1914-28,1930-35), Fourteenstep (1920-28),and Original Dance (1930-1934), before settling on a unified dance championship (1929,1936-2003).

The most inconsistently held(12 times scattered over 1924-91,once since 1950) event at US Nationals has been Fours.

The 1896-2001 World and World+Olympic Medal Point Lists.

The World Championships started in 1896.They were effectively unisex until a woman entered and won silver in 1902,when they decided to have men's singles 1903-1990,then added ladies' singles 1906-90.

Today these have been replaced by men's freeskating (top 10 1991-2,complete standings 1993-2002) and ladies' freeskating(complete standings 1991-2002).

The World pairs medalists 1908-2001.

The 1996 World Championships were in Edmonton,Canada;the 1997 World Championships were in Lausanne,Switzerland;
the 1998 World Championships were in Minneapolis,the 1999 World Championships were in Helsinki...the 2000 World Championships were supposed to be in Brisbane,Australia (before a last-minute move to Nice by ISU edict), 2001 World Championships in Vancouver,and the 2002 in Nagano,Japan.
