NORWOOD, Nov. 10— Willard Winn Everett, 69, 76 Winter st., feature editor of the Norwood Daily Messenger and long known as this town’s “unofficial historian,” died today at Norwood Hospital.

He was graduated from Amherst College in 1901 and became a director of the Natural History Museum at Rochester, N. Y. Later he became a correspondent of the New York Sun at Springfield, and after that became an advertising solicitor for the Boot and Shoe Recorder in New York and Boston.

Returning to Norwood in the early ’30s he conducted an historical survey of the town. In 1937 he became editor of the Messenger and left that position to manage a local store. In 1946 he returned to the Messenger as its feature editor.

He was a charter member of the Norwood Historical Society and a member of the board of trustees of Morrow Memorial Library from 1920-44.

He leaves a wife, Florence, and two daughters Mrs. Stanley Cottrell of Norwood and Carroll Everett of the Special Services Division, USA, at Augsburg, Germany.

Services will be held Wednesday at 2:30 p. m. in the First Congregational Church.
