Malio J. Cardarelli began his career as an advertising copywriter for a Utica, New York radio station after earning his Bachelor of Science Degree in Public Relations from Utica College of Syracuse University. He subsequently went on to other writing positions both in advertising and public relations. In 1962, he left the writing field to become a personnel consultant, continuing in that endeavor for more than 30 years.

Immediately after his retirement, he became reestablished in the arena of journalism, immersing himself in the task of researching and chronicling regional people, places, and happenings he believes worthy of preservation. He does this via his books and a two-series-a-year local-history column he writes for the Utica Observer-Dispatch.

The author blends into his works interesting and sometimes humorous anecdotes that make reading both pleasurable and informative. Nostalgia is the chief ingredient in his writings.
