Mary Louise Laird, a native of Milwaukee, founded Quelquefois Press in 1969 at Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin, where she also worked with her former husband, Walter Hamady, at the Perishable Press. In 1988 she moved to Berkeley, California, where she continues to print under the Quelquefois imprint. Her deep interest in mysticism and Sufism is evident in much of her later work.
