I was born in October 1933 in Woodson, Texas. Graduated from High School in Snyder, Texas in 1952. In September of the same year, I entered Texas Tech College in Lubbock and graduated 5 years later with studies in petroleum engineering, business and completed my studies in sociology, English and anthropology. My intent was to go into the Methodist ministry. Following college, I served as an officer in the U.S. Army for two years and 12 years as a reserve officer. In 1960 I became employed by Wyeth Laboratories in San Antonio, Texas. I spent the next 33 years in that field. It was in this field that I developed an interest in the history of Texas pharmacy, and it was during this time that I amassed a huge collection of pharmacy artifacts. I retired in January 1994 and initiated a plan to develop a pharmacy museum in Texas. This dream came true in 1997 when I was invited to build a museum at the new Texas Tech University School of Pharmacy in Amarillo, Texas. This project was completed in January of 2000.
My dream was complete until I met Dr. Johnson-Fannin, the founding dean of the new Feik School of Pharmacy at the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas. Today, I am proud to have built a pharmacy museum in her new school of pharmacy.
