- Name: Karen Campbell
- Location: Waynesville, Ohio, United States
I am the genealogy librarian at The Mary L. Cook Public Library in Waynesville, Ohio. I am interested in all aspects of our local history but my special interest is in mid-western Quaker history and genealogy. I have authored and compiled some books: Quaker Education and Miami Valley Institute: A Hicksite Quaker College, Murder in Waynesville: The Anderson Tragedy, Obituaries and Death Notices found in the Miami-Visitor Weekly Newspaper of Waynesville, etc., and Friendly Research: An Introduction to Quaker Genealogical Research, etc. I feel that the history and legacy of The Society of Friends in this area of Ohio is interesting, significant and edifying. The history of Waynesville, Ohio is a microcosm of American history. Waynesville was a town made up of a diverse group of pioneers and its development paralleled the diversity, the struggles and the growth of the United States. I am also interested in the history and culture of other local towns, villages and hamlets in the area, for example, Harveysburg, Ohio. AND, as you can also tell from my blog, "Conversations with my Cats", I love cats!!
