Biographical or historical data
Myrtie Barker was a lifelong resident of Indianapolis, the daughter of Harry G. and Mary A. Barker. She was born July 24, 1910 and died January 28, 1983. At age eleven she was struck with polio, after which she was homeschooled and found a love of writing. From 1938-1949, Myrtie wrote a weekly column for the Sheridan News, "The Lighthouse." Later she was hired by the Indianapolis News to write a column three times weekly, titled "My Window" (1949-1983). She was the author of three books: "Parade of Days" (1957), "I Am Only One" (1963), and "Where Is Everybody?" (1968).
