About Sally U. Smith
On a dairy farm, in southwest Missouri, Sally U. Smith grew up reading books. Sally began a summer newsletter for her junior high classmates. She wrote each friend and asked what they were doing. Using a manual typewriter, her dad used in college, and many pages of carbon paper, she snail mailed her findings to her pals. Later, Sally wrote feature articles and a sports column for the Eagle Eye, her high school’s newspaper.
