ArthUr was long time member of the Chesapeake woodturners and a great freind to woodturning.
While he is best know as a collector He did a little bit of turning and took a week long class with Bonnie Kline
He led many sessions over the years at the AAW symposium. I always enjoyed opportunities to talk with Arthur and his wife Jane who was also a member of the Chesapeake club.

Arthur and Jane hosted the Chesapeake club in their home on several occasions to see their extensive collection of turning. They also often invited the well known turners who visited the Chesapeake club to their their home as well.
Arthur and Jane are both life members of the AAW
Woodturning has lost a true freind

Sherry and I will miss him.
