Yern „Bo“ Jorgenson and his wife Billie owned a shop named "Gateway Pipes and Tobaccos" in Wayne, Pennsylvania. He was an authorized repairer to Dunhill and Charatan (among others).

Besides that he made his own pipes, which were exclusively sold in the shop. The pipes were credited for their extraordinary quality: best briar from Sardinia, personally selected at Carl B. Weber's pipe factory in New York and a very traditional manner of manufacturing with tools handed down to him by his grandfather. Putty was never used and the finish was done with Carnuba wax only. - Early in the 70's his pipes asked prices around 15 - 16 Dollars.
