Reared in his native town, where he attended the parochial schools, he completed his education at Ohio State University, Columbus, and became one of the pioneer members in the profession of public accountancy in Ohio. A member of an old and well known family of Pickaway County, personally popular himself, and on the basis of his qualifications as a public accountant, Mr. Dodd was elected and from 1913 until 1918 served as county auditor of Piekaway County.
