Pharmacy Was a Family Affair

Perhaps Marguerite Cole Moore, ’60, was predestined to become a pharmacist. Her father, Wallace Cole, grew up in Salida, Colorado, and worked there for Wagoner’s Drug Store. When he graduated from high school in 1924, he worked in Denver for Maier Drug and Strickland Drug Company, prior to enrolling in the Capitol College of Pharmacy.

He received his fifty-year certificate of Pharmacy Registration in 1978.
