Biography of William F. Malone
Lucas County, OH Biographies

Various business interests have claimed the time and attention of William Francis Malone, who is now the secretary and treasurer of the Harter Candy Company. He has also spent a period of years in public office and in every relation of life he has measured up to the demands made upon him in the way of progressive, intelligently directed and honorable business activity and public service. Mr. Malone is a native of Toledo, born February 15, 1863. His father, Edward Malone, was one of the early contractors and builders of the city, being accorded the contract for the erection of the Body House and also of the State Asylum. In fact, he erected most of the large buildings in Toledo in his day and occupied a leading position among the contractors here.

His son, William Francis Malone, attended St. Patrick's school and the Assumption College, thus acquiring the education which qualified him for life's practical and responsible duties. He later spent one year with the Lake Shore & Michigan Southern Railroad and then joined his father in business, being thus associated until 1889. In the latter year he became secretary treasurer of the Buckeye Paint & Oil Company and so continued for fourteen years, or until 1903, when he was made a member of the board of review of Lucas county and occupied that position altogether for sixteen years, or until 1919. Since his retirement from office he has been the secretary treasurer of the Harter Candy Company and is active in control of what is today one of the important commercial interests of the city.

On the 7th of May, 1889, Mr. Malone was married to Miss Mary White, a native of Chicago, and they have become the parents of seven children: Rev. Francis E. Malone, D. D., who is now a chancellor of the Toledo diocese; Robert J., who married Agnes Schindler of Toledo, and has two children, Robert Charles and William Francis, Jr.; Elizabeth; Catherine, who is now known as Sister Aloysia, being a Sister of Mercy; Helen; Margaret; and Richard W. The religious faith of the family is that of the Catholic church. Mr. Malone is a member of the Inverness Club and he has a very wide acquaintance in Toledo, where his life has been passed, many of his stanchest friends being those who have known him from his boyhood to the present time.
