Mary Knox Wells spent her 1970s girlhood living in a house adjoining the old Wal
Mary Knox Wells spent her 1970s girlhood living in a house adjoining the old Waldo County Jail in Belfast, after her father, Stanley Knox, was elected Waldo County Sheriff. Important aspects of the jail's workings spilled over into the house, and her mother, Mary Blake Knox, cooked most of the inmates' meals. As a teenager she was deputized to work with female prisoners, and says growing up as she did gave her an insight into human nature she might not have received otherwise.
