Mildred Wirt Benson Quotes #1

Many people who knew Mildred "Millie" Benson have a "Millie Story" - I'm saving most of those for the book, but there's also some great Millie quotes! I wanted to share some of these with you all as I'm plugging through my research files and writing my Biography on Millie Benson.

Millie: "Age shouldn't count. They always use age against you though. When I was hired they told me I would be the first one let go - so, you see, I called them on that. Now I'm the only one left."

--Interview by Christopher Borrelli, Dec/Jan '99 Ohio Magazine - regarding her longevity at the Toledo Times/Toledo Blade from 1944 to present day
