Waiters/Ruska Gregg Memorial Glut
When Archie Waiters was retired and had time to sit down and reminisce, he was telling how his great-uncle Ruska Gregg made a white-oak basket. Stopping in the middle of his story, Waiters left the room and returned with the glut that Gregg had used to make baskets. Waiters said that I could have it. I was impressed that Waiters was willing to part with the glut that he had treasured for half a century. I promised him that I would put it in the collection of tools, and, in acknowledgment of his generosity, I would name it the Archie Waiters/Ruska Gregg Memorial Glut. That is the reason this little piece of wood has such an imposing name. (Photo 1994)
