     Biographical details about Mr. J. K. PITTARD of Anson can be found on page 101 of the June 1929 (Volume 50, Number 3) issue of The Texas Druggist. (Some capitalization may be added and punctuation may be changed for clarity.) A picture of him accompanies the text. Headlines above the photograph state: “J. K. PITTARD, Thirty-Eighth President, Texas Pharmaceutical Association, Serving One Term, 1928, Anson, Texas.” Although the caption above and under the picture gives his name as J. K., he is called “Knox” in the article.

     “Knox was born at Lineville, Alabama, April 26th, 1876.” A high school graduate, he came to Texas in October 1897. He “owns and operates one of the best drug stores in West Texas. He served as president of the West Texas District Association and member of the State Executive Committee before being elected President of the Association. He has done more to secure good roads for his section of the state than any man living there.” Owner of a 2,500-acre farm, Knox took “great pride” in his agricultural pursuits. An active member of the Methodist Church, he was married and had two children, a boy and a girl. “He is our Golden Jubilee President and it is to be hoped that the Centennial President will be able to measure up to him.”
