Pictured here are, top row, Gerhard Fischer (later spelled
Fisher) and Kenneth C. White, and bottom row, Charles Garrett and
Jack Gifford (Tesoro).
They are the four men who founded the four premier metal detector manufacturing companies in the United States.
And with the passing last week of Charles Garrett, we have lost all four.
This week's In the Treasure Corner podcast remembers these giants of the industry, and wishes time didn't pass quite so quickly as it does.
