Myrtle Mallard, born September 3, 1904, died December 25, 1972

Mallard’s Bar in Dearborn, Michigan was a bar frequented by my grandparents and great-grandparents.  Mom remembers going with her parents and playing games and eating hamburgers.  Grandpa Thompson used to get drunk and walk home (about a mile away on Bennet Street).  Myrtle V. Mallard was the wife of the owner, William L. Mallard.  According to the 1948 Polk’s Dearborn City Directory, Mallard’s was listed as a Beer Garden at 2247 S. Telegraph Rd.  William Mallard also owned a gas station at 2245 S. Telegraph Rd.  William and his wife Myrtle lived at 40140 Michigan Ave. in Wayne, Michigan.
