Floyd E. Farr
Was born at Macon, Mo., January 4, 1878. Received his grammar grade schooling at Moberly, Mo. When he was 15 years old he entered the employ of the Cramer Drug Co. of Cowgill, Mo., but soon went to Humeston, Iowa where he served his apprenticeship under H.C. Ady of the Ady Drug Co., and A.T. Benge of the Benge Drug Co., who purchased the Ady business. By industrious work in the store during the day and by hard studying at night, Mr. Farr fitted himself for the state board of examinations, receiving his certificate in September, 1898. For a short time he had charge of the Shipley Drug Co. at Corydon, Iowa, and later was mamager of one of the Stevens stores at Kansas City, Mo. In 1899 Lew Young induced him to come back to Humeston with the Benge Drug Co., which business he soon purchased conducting it under the name of F.E. Farr Drug Co. He has managed the business continuously since that time.
