This website is dedicated to the memory of Ed Harper, born March 23, 1944, died April 13, 2012.
Ed spent countless hours of volunteer effort in setting up and maintaining this site and moderating the Around the Anvil newsgroup. In addition to being a talented blacksmith and a friend to everyone he met, he was the webmaster of this site from 2002 until his death in 2012. He will be missed.
Rest in peace Ed.
