Biographical Sketch of William Owen Camp

William Owen Camp worked at the De Soto Railroad Shops as a machinist from 1919 until the workers went on strike as part of the Great Railroad Strike in July of 1922. He did not go back when the strike ended in 1924, having started Camp's Dairy in the interim. The dairy delivered house to house, first by horse-drawn buggy and then by pickup truck until 1946 when the dairy was sold to People's Dairy in De Soto.
