A biography of William Evans Ward. William Evans Ward was born in Indiana in 1821, but moved east with his family at an early age. In 1845 he went to Port Chester, N.Y., and started a business, devoting his attention first to the manufacture of wood screws and afterwards establishing a bolt and nut manufacturing plant, which continued in operation until the operation was transferred to Colorado in 1794. He was a pioneer in business and held many mechanical patents. By training and experience a mechanical engineer, Ward was a charter member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
