Believe it or not, Butt is a family name, and Butt Drugs is a third generation family pharmacy established in 1952 by the late William (Blackie) Butt, R.Ph.
Thomas Butt, son of William and also a pharmacist, began working along side of his father in 1971. These were two generations of Purdue pharmacy graduates, as well as fishermen extraordinaire. Evidence of their large mouth bass, swordfish, and marlin achievements still adorn the store's walls.
After William died in 1997, Tom was managing the business and working as a full-time pharmacist. In 2001, an offer was extended to Katie Butt, Tom's daughter, to join a father/daughter team. After close to 50 years of business, Katie brought with her an Indiana University degree in management, some new marketing strategies, and a few improvement imaginings. The toughest thought was mixing the cream and crimson with all that black and gold, but things seemed to evolve perfectly.
