Default Jerry Anderson

Kate, this is Gene Williams. I had the pleasure of knowing Jerry Anderson for 3 1/2 years in the 1970's. He introduced me to rugs...and indeed personally identified every rug I own. I have pictures of him in Karachi and of his two kids (your father or mother?) when they were young (I visited his former wife - your grandmother - in October 1978 on Guernsey). And I have a small collection of letters...others have more - he was a prolific correspondent.

I've often thought of writing up my observations on this very unique character in the Pakistan and rug world, which I'll probably do over the next couple of weeks. In the meantime I'll post some photos here and will contact you on your e-mail.

Jerry lived for several years 1975-78 with Raymond Woodhead, a half boer, half Anglo South African Britisher, who was as an intelligent and interesting a man as one could find. Unfortunately Raymond has opted to go "dark" on the web though family members can still be traced. And a number of Baluch still remember him...I discussed him with relatives of the Khan of Kalat in Quetta in 2008.
