More on the Dillon pharmacists
George W. Dillon's obituary (Adair County News, Wednesday, April 15, 1930) made no mention of formal education, stating just he "engaged in the mercantile and drug business for 40 years" at Breeding, KY, prior to moving to Columbia in 1922. When Mr. Dillon bought the Columbia drug store that year, the News referred to him as a registered pharmacist. He possibly gained registration via passing a board examination rather than by formal education, as did many of that era.
Rich Dillon's obituary (Adair County News, Wednesday, August 28, 1957) stated he was "educated at Lindsey Wilson Normal School, Beechmont Military Academy, Louisville School of Pharmacy, and the Max Norris School of Pharmacy in Macon, Ga." The obituary made no mention from which pharmacy school he was graduated.
