Theresa Marie Flaherty


The Final Test - A Biography of James Ball Naylor

was held on May 16, 2011

611 State Route 97 West - Bellville, Ohio

Theresa refers to herself as an accidental biographer. She paid tribute to two great Buckeyes that made her journey possible – Dr. James Ball Naylor, physician, best-selling author, poet, entertainer, and political columnist from Morgan County, and her mentor, Dwight Wesley Garber, an Ohio historian from Richland County.

The Final Test and Vintage Verse, a new collection of poetry by Dr. Naylor, were both available for purchase. Mrs. Flaherty discussed her research and experiences in writing the book and read some of Naylor’s poetry. She was available for questions and autographed the books.
