Asa Glascock Trading Post

Asa Glascock (1898-1965), a native of Ralls County, Missouri, owned and operated a successful trading post located on North Third Street in Gallup, New Mexico from 1922 to 1957.  He and his wife also managed a post in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, for several years during the mid-1950s.  

Prior to becoming a trader, Glascock volunteered for the sheriff, serving as a member of the Gallup town posse when necessary and worked for the trans-continental railway.  During his time with the rail, which ran through the middle of town, Glascock severely injured his right hand.  This prompted his career change and became a trader who spoke fluent Navajo.

Asa’s wife, Margaret Smith Glascock (1924-2002), assisted him with the day-to-day activities typical of any thriving store—ordering supplies, showing merchandise, taking jewelry for pawn, operating the cash register, and keeping financial records.   

The post sold Navajo blankets, Pendleton blankets, pawn jewelry, glass beads, groceries, and household goods similar to those found in today’s small hardware stores.  One original item however, surpassed all others: the beaded leather belts.  The Glascocks sold the profitable belts to the National Park Service, as well as to dealers across the country.   

The post had a long counter off to the side, where Czechoslovakian glass beads were sold.  The Zuni purchased the colorful beads by the “whiskey shot glass” and hurried home to loom-bead vibrant strips in the requisite length.  When finished, the beaders returned the strips to the post where Margaret, using her Singer, stitched the strips to commercially made leather belts.  Her sons often helped her with the final phase of lacing white plastic around the edges.  The belt orders dwindled when the Japanese began imitating the belts. 

Glascock sold his post in 1957 and the family returned to a farm in Missouri where they, like the Navajo, kept a herd of sheep.  (David Williamson to Meyn, February 16, 2015, and Mary Tate Engels, ed., Tales from Wide Ruins, 1996: 192)

General Orlando B. Willcox, Medal of Honor Winner, Oil Portrait
Lot # - General Orlando B. Willcox, Medal of Honor Winner, Oil Portrait
Post-war oil painting on canvas of General Orlando B. Willcox in uniform, unsigned, 21.5 x 25.25 in., framed, 27.5 x 31.25 in.

Born in Detroit, Orlando Bolivar Willcox (1823-1907) was a celebrated career United States Army officer who graduated West Point in 1847 and dedicated nearly 40 years' service to his country before retiring as a regular Brig. General in 1887. Willcox served initially in the 4th Artillery during the later stages of the Mexican War fighting Indians on the Great Plains and during the Third Seminole War before resigning in 1857 to pursue a law career.

In March 1895 General Willcox was awarded a Medal of Honor for “distinguished gallantry” at First Bull Run, where, as Colonel, he commanded a brigade consisting of his own 1st Michigan Infantry and the famous 11th NY (Ellsworth’s) Fire Zouaves and “led repeated charges until wounded and taken prisoner.” Subsequently, Willcox was held at Richmond, Charleston and Columbia, SC before being exchanged in August 1862 and promoted to Brig. General retroactive to July 21, 1861 (Bull Run). Afterward, Willcox was given command of a division in fellow 1847 classmate Ambrose Burnside’s Corps and fought steadily at Antietam and Fredericksburg. In 1863 he commanded the District of Indiana and Michigan before returning to divisional command for the grueling Knoxville Campaign.

Once more under Burnside, he led his division during Grant’s Overland Campaign receiving a brevet promotion to Major General in August 1864 for “actions after crossing the Rapidan.” General Willcox commanded the first troops to enter Petersburg following the lengthy siege.

Orlando Willcox was twice brevetted in 1867 for his Civil War service (Spotsylvania and Petersburg) and reverted to Colonel of the 12th Infantry in March 1869. Toward the end of his stellar career Willcox took command of the Department of the Arizona and “effectively suppressed the raids of the Apache Indians, and for his service in this conjunction received a vote of thanks form the Arizona Legislature.” Willcox was promoted to Brig. General, Regular Army in October 1886 and was placed on the statutory retirement list in April 1887. The General was among the last of the army’s surviving high-profile Civil War officers when he died at age 84 on May 11, 1907. The general is buried at Arlington (Section 1, Grave 18).
