Honoring Oldfield


Thomas Mudd (left), president of the Saginaw, Mich., Hall of Fame, presented a plaque last week to Wauseon Mayor Kathy Huner and Fulton County Historical Museum Director John Swearingen Jr. commemorating the success of Barney Oldfield, an award-winning car racer in the early 20th Century who became one of Fulton County’s most famous native sons. Oldfield lived in Saginaw a couple of years, and was inducted into that city’s Hall of Fame. The plaque will join an exhibit of Oldfield memorabilia at the county’s historical museum. “We thought it was important to share our little history with Wauseon,” Mudd said.
