About Mardo Williams

Mardo Williams (1905-2001)(center) began his writing career in 1927 as the only reporter at the Kenton, Ohio daily, The News-Republican, eventually writing a daily business column with byline for the Columbus Dispatch. At age 89 he wrote a book about his mother, Maude (1883-1993): She Grew Up with the Country, an intimate look at the woman, the country, and the times. Maude, now in its third printing, captures the spirit of a century and is a favorite with book discussion groups and college history classes. Mardo also penned an illustrated children’s picture book, Great-Grandpa Fussy and the Little Puckerdoodles, a collection of 21 stories (for ages 5 and up) which capture the magic of childhood. In 2001, Mardo Williams was the first posthumous recipient of the OHIOANA LIBRARY AWARD for his body of work as author and journalist.
