Jerry Gregg is a reknowned bushman from Queanbeyan NSW. His extraordinary contributions to KHA have included a short stint on the Committee, but he far prefers to spend time outdoors, working on the huts. His skillswith traditional tools are exceptional.

Jim and Shirley were for many years, the KHA Archivists and kept the 2000 plus KHA Hut photographs in pristine, organised condition. In late 2003, these were donated to the National Museum of Australia, where any person can request to see them.
