Biography Ed (Eddy) Mumma
Edward Mumma was born in Milton, Ohio, in 1908. As a young man he traveled the county doing odd jobs, until he married and settled down near Springfield, Ohio, around 1936. Mumma and his wife started an antiques and junk business, which they ran until his wife's death in 1966. That year, he retired to Gainesville, Florida, to be near his daughter.
Although it was said Mumma had a cheery and upbeat personality, the artist was ill most of his life1. After moving to Florida, Mumma's daughter encouraged him to take an art class, to help take his mind off of his illnesses. The teacher told Mumma his style was "sloppy", and although Mumma never took another class, he continued to paint.
