Bio from HistoryLink.org

George H. Bartell Sr. was the founder of Seattle's Bartell Drugs, the oldest family-owned drug store chain in the United States. Trained as a pharmacist, Bartell arrived in Seattle in 1890, at the age of 21. He bought his first drug store two weeks later. He struggled along for several years before founding Bartell's Owl Drug, after the Klondike gold rush of 1897 had turned Seattle into a boom town. He was an innovator in the development of soda fountains and other drug store traditions such as processing film.
