The history of the Howell family began in Vandalia in 1946. It was this year in which William Howell, also know as "ikky," moved to Vandalia to begin his career as a dentist, following in the footsteps of his father, Dr. Robert Howell, of Troy.

It was also during this year that his future bride, Miss Helen Dowd, moved to Vandalia to begin her career as the home economics teacher in the Vandalia School District.

He graduated from Troy High School in 1939 and proceeded to Central College, now known as Central Methodist University, in Fayette. Two years later he began his schooling in dentistry at Washington University, St. Louis, graduating with a doctor of dental surgery. He later served in the Army; following his release he moved to Vandalia and took over the practice of retiring dentist, Dr. A. G. Beshears. Dr. Howell practiced dentistry for 40 years before retiring in 1986.
