Marvin Vernal Williams was born in 1903 in Overbrook, Kansas, the oldest child of Joseph Edgar Williams and Bertha Leah Michael. Marvin was raised on a farm probably doing all the things that a typical farm boy would do and attending rural schools. I seem to recall him saying that he played football in the days of leather helmets. After high school, he attended Kansas State Agricultural College, in Manhattan. He also taught school for a short time. Born too late for World War I and too early for World War II, Marvin nevertheless served a between-wars hitch in the National Guard. He eventually went to work for the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad as a shipment tracer clerk.
