Nisqually Valley News  December 11, 1942

 Born 33 years ago in Los Angeles, California, Osborne K. Edwards moved with his parent, Mr. and Mrs. Frank N. Edwards and their three other children, Dallas, Shirley, and Lee to the present family home on Lawrence Lake when he was very young.

After spending grade and high school in Yelm, Ozzie went to the University of Oregon, where he studies business administration and became a member of Alpha Chi Omega.  While in college Ozzie played on the university baseball team and was the ace pitcher for Oregon.  He also starred in basketball and football for Oregon.

Five years later he married Jane Wadsworth, of Tacoma, and they have since made their home in Yelm, where Mr. Edwards manages his grocery store.  Their son, Stephen, was born a year ago.

Corpulent and genial, Ozzie’s idea of recreation is to fish and hunt in the Bald Hills region, while his main hobby seems to be cutting meet for his market.
