Link: Mark Twain's Mentor
I thought CM readers might enjoy this article about William Wright (aka Dan de Quille), one of Mark Twain's early mentors. The article notes that Mr. Wright was a native of Knox County but doesn't mention the state. It was Knox County, Ohio.
KnoxPages.com: This Knox County native launched Mark Twain.
